Peanuts remain one of the cleanest and easiest ways to attract and feed birds in your garden. And if you’re feeding peanuts you should feed them from a good quality peanut feeder, to stop birds taking large chunks of peanut which could be potentially harmful.
To attract the widest possible variety (not just the occasional Blue Tit) of birds to bird feeders, it's important to offer several different feeders and foods in your garden. Basically, these can be split into four types: peanut feeders, seed feeders, Niger seed feeders and softfood/live food feeders. So one each of these bird feeders plus, a cage for suet blocks should ensure you maximise the number of different species of wild bird you can attract to your garden.
