More and more of us are feeding wildlife in built-up areas; our towns and cities are becoming exciting hotbeds of biodiversity. Unfortunately, however, urban bird feeding presents one or two different challenges to city enthusiasts; for example, if there isn’t a safe place to leave a bird food parcel the delivery driver will leave a card and try to arrange a more suitable delivery window. If we’re at work all day, or just out and about, this could become a problem. Wouldn’t it be nice if the order could…y’know…just squeeze through a letterbox?
Well that’s exactly why we have introduced CityFeed – to encourage birders in built up areas (where it may not be safe to leave parcels if out) to try our new convenient CityFeed packs, which can be delivered by Royal Mail and posted through letterboxes.
"Smaller sizes – order more frequently – nice and fresh bird food – conveniently posted through letterboxes at home or even at work!"
City gardens can be small – but that doesn’t mean they’re too small to site a bird feeder. In fact one of the simplest (and most entertaining) formats for the urban birder to explore is a good quality window feeder. This is easily fixed to the window by the means of strong suction cups, which allows even the humblest of homes to play a role in caring for birds. (We can’t unfortunately (yet) deliver feeders through letterboxes but we’re working on it…).
If you don’t have a garden, borrow someone else’s! If the city is blessed with one thing it’s the fact that public spaces often have wildlife that can be fed when we’re away from home. The classic example is a pond where it’s often very acceptable to feed the ducks and wild geese – just check the area for feeding advice and stay clear of providing bread – instead try a Duck & Goose Mix CityFeed.
