Feeding Tips
  • Feed all year round to ensure nutritional requirements are fulfilled whilst breeding and nesting
  • Feed regularly, as once you start, birds quickly become dependant on you
  • In severe weather feed twice daily ­ morning and early afternoon
  • Food should be available first thing in the morning as this is when birds replace energy used overnight, particularly in cold weather
  • Have several feeding sites around the garden, to prevent overcrowding
  • Feeders should be in open spaces, so predators can be seen easily
  • To attract a wide variety of birds, provide a range of feeders and feeds, asdifferent birds prefer different feeds and have different feeding habits
  • Ensure fresh clean water for both drinking and bathing is always available
  • Sunflower Seed, Black Sunflower Move and clean feeders and water baths regularly
  • During Autumn and Winter ensure high energy feeds are available e.g. peanuts and fat balls in addition to a seed mixture
  • During Spring and Summer ensure high protein feeds are available e.g. sunflower hearts in addition to a seed mixture
