Peanut suet pellets combined with a medley of seeds provide a bountiful blend of fat and oils to help power them through the colder months. Mealworms easily attract a wide range of birds to your garden whilst raisins will keep your visitors reassuringly well fed. Black sunflower seeds are a favourite to entice finches, but with this mix everyone’s favourites will be available this winter.
Most of our food products contain nuts or traces of nuts and are made in an environment that handles nuts. Because of this, we do not recommend that you handle any of our bird food products if you have a nut allergy.
Groats is the name for oats that have had their husk removed. Removing this extra layer helps birds to digest less of the stuff they don't need, such as chaff, and more of the stuff they do - like wholesome oats. For the same reasons we enjoy them in our own breakfast, oats provide slow release energy that allows wild birds to maintain their weight and manage their energy levels - keeping them fuller for longer.
As the last seed that is harvested from sunflowers, black sunflower seeds are brimming with energy rich oils that can be enjoyed by many wild birds. Their thin husks are easy to break into and leave minimal mess, so they can concentrate on the eating and you can do less cleaning up!
Peanuts are a familiar favourite for many birds due to their protein-rich kernels. Calorie laden and full of fat, peanuts present the perfect treat for birds in your garden that will help see them through the changing seasons, allowing them to gain weight easily and conserve energy efficiently.
Sunflower hearts are a go-to for easy-to-access nutrition for smaller billed birds. Sunflower hearts are huskless striped sunflower, so this mean less mess for you and more food for your wild birds. Full of fat and oil, these seeds offer a no fuss, no mess feed for your smallest and most discerning 'customers'!
If you're used to feeding birds, then you'll know that Niger is as close to a wild bird delicacy as you can get! Niger offers unrivalled levels of rich oils that can boost your little visitors activity tenfold. The protein in these tiny black seeds keeps their plumage looking its very best and can help prevent moulting, so is a firm favourite for all wild birds.
Red Dari is an extra energising seed due to its balanced mixture of fats, oils and proteins. This nourishing nibble can be enjoyed all year round as it offers wild birds the best blend of all the nutrients they need.
Red Millet is a great grain that provides a wide variety of vitamins and minerals to wild birds that they often miss out on. It is easy to digest for birds big and small, so will go down well with all of your guests!
Striped sunflower is arguably one of the most nourishing morsels you can give to wild and hungry birds. Whilst it is full of the usual fat and oils that birds thrive on, its added vitamins and minerals are what really help birds to flourish. Larger birds are particularly fond of striped sunflower seeds as their bills can easily break into the husks to retrieve these tasty seeds.
As if peanuts weren't good enough on their own, mixed with suet (beef fat) and in popular pellet form - they are even more desirable and delicious! Wild birds will gravitate towards these at certain times of the year to plump up and stay energised.
Linseed is loved by wild birds for giving them their daily boost of Omega-3. Whilst it will be popular with your guests all year round, it is particularly useful for them when they begin to moult and need to conserve energy as winter approaches.
Mealworms are excellent at attracting a wide variety of birds, as all can enjoy the benefits of these meaty treats. Wild birds consume insects naturally, so they are a familiar feature in their daily diet. The balance of fat, protein and fibre also helps with bird's muscle development.
When fresh fruit isn't easy to find, raisins make a welcome discovery for tired birds who need an instant energy boost. As they are high in natural sugar, wild birds will flock towards these in winter to increase their energy levels. This also helps them to gain weight and keep warm in the colder months.
Kibbled Maize is simply Maize (corn) that has been put through a process to break it up into smaller, more manageable pieces for birds to consume. Maize is great for boosting energy as it is full of filling carbohydrates and fats.
