"A kilo bag of live mealworms - ¬£19.50....a wren eating out of you hand on a cold winter's day - priceless"
"What a difference a week can make! February‚Äôs weather was characteristically mixed with
snow blizzards across the county one week, then 10 degrees and positively spring-like the next.
The feeling that Spring is just around the corner is shared with a sense of realistic optimism.
Whilst woodpeckers can be heard drumming for miles through quiet woodland and tits can be
seen floating from branch to branch in their butterfly-type mating flights, it‚Äôs worth considering
that tough times still lay ahead. With that in mind, this month‚Äôs assortment of seed and
accompaniments will provide for all eventualities."
In this month‚Äôs Birdy Box:
A great mix for most garden birds from sparrows
to collared doves. Contains Wheat, Hemp, Red Dari,
Sunfl ower Seeds, Canary Seeds, Millet and Linseed.
Hi-Energy Block with Wiggly Crumble
We‚Äôve taken our Wiggly Crumble bird feed and mixed
it into high grade, hi-energy suet to make this great
alternative to normal seeds. Ideal for winter feeding.
Black Sunfl ower Seed
These seeds are packed with oils and protein, making
them a year round alternative to peanuts. Harvested
from sunfl owers grown here on the farm by Farmer
Phil, a great all round wild birdfood.
These fat balls provide high levels of energy. To prevent
birds getting caught in the mesh remove the plastic
wrapping before use.
Birds simply adore these! Mealworms are made up of
over 48% crude protein and 40% fat, making them an
excellent, proven food for all insect eating garden birds.
Robins can‚Äôt get enough of them
