Our award-winning super-clean seeds are safer for Britain's birds because uncleaned seed mixes can contain dust, debris and waste husk which are all harmful to birds. We've been feeding the nation's birds since 1937 and all our garden bird diets come with a money-back guarantee and home or office delivery is included on orders over £30 to UK mainland destinations.
Our feeders come in all shapes and sizes including squirrel proof to stop grey squirrels in their tracks. We stock easy to clean Droll Yankee (Lifetime Guarantee), Bill Oddie's feeders and more. A high-quality feeder will typically last longer. Many of ours can be adapted with accessories to improve feeding results and save bird seed from getting wet, for example. If you have squirrels in your garden, consider a squirrel proof feeder as you’ll save money in the long run.
Your wildlife garden will be full of birds in no time and that's when garden bird enthusiasts often turn their attention to nest boxes, bird baths and bird health - often asking how to clean bird feeders and feeding stations. This wildlife category will help you select the best nest box for your wild birds, make fresh water available daily, keep grey squirrels at bay, and help you choose safe, bird care hygiene essentials.
Autumn is now here and this brings many changes in the natural world. Animals and plants get prepared for the colder months ahead and it’s a great time of year to venture outside.
A drop in temperature starts off mass migration as birds from the UK leave our shores for warmer climates in Africa. Watch out for Fieldfares and Redwings that migrate here for the winter.
You may see Jays and squirrels burying acorns which help provide meals through the cold winter.
Invertebrates such as Ladybirds and Butterflies may seek warm places in which to sleep through as the temperature drops.
Bats, dormice, and hedgehogs will binge on insects, fruit and nuts to build up their body fat to help them through hibernation.
As sunlight becomes weaker trees will stop producing chlorophyll for photosynthesis which causes leaves to change colour. As the season progresses you will see full leaf tint when every leaf changes from yellow, brown or red.
Plants also look to the future by dispersing their seeds. From September you may see sycamore “helicopters” floating to the ground or beech nuts which take a ride on animal coats. Plants also use fruit to spread their seeds for instance blackberries are readily eaten by wasps, foxes, and birds.
Even though the weather maybe cold and dull, autumn is a fabulous time to go outside and discover what nature has to offer.
