Our current mix is for summer. It contains the best ingredients for birds to share with their chicks and provides rich nutrients for moulting birds. We include many sunflower hearts (for added vitamin E), lots of protein rich mealworms, a healthy dose of pinhead oats, nyjer seed (a favourite of the beautiful goldfinch) and a sprinkle of cut maize and red dari for extra flavour and colour to attract more birds.
We only ever sell one mix of bird food. It’s our job to carefully select only the most relevant ingredients for your birds for each season. Our ingredients change 4 times per year to make sure your birds always get the right food each season. (You can read more about how our mix changes across the seasons here).
What weight of bird food should I go for?
Deliveries come in two sizes: 6kg and 12.75kg. Smaller in size, the 6kg sacks can be popped away in a kitchen or in a cupboard and are very conveniently sized. Our 12.75kg sacks are our best value and are ideal for customers who have a bit more space to store sacks such as a garden shed or a utility room.
A typical bird feeder holds around 400g of seed. That means our 6kg sack will refill a feeder 15 times and our 12.75kg sack will refill a feeder 32 times. All you need to do is order a weight and frequency that suits your storage needs and the hungriness of your garden birds! You can change or stop your deliveries at a later date if your needs change too.
We know working out how much bird food you need can sometimes be a bit of guesswork. If you have any questions, just send an email to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org - we are always on hand and happy to help.
What could I see?
Your bird food is designed and curated to attract a wide variety and number of garden birds. Just like us humans, different birds like different types of foods. It’s on us to carefully select your ingredients and their proportions so you can sit back, watch the birds and relax.
There are so many characters to smile at. Blackbirds, Blue tits, Chaffinches, Dunnocks, Robins, Nuthatches, Long-tailed tits, Great tits, Goldfinches, Great Spotted Woodpeckers and so many more. (Have a little read about your garden visitors here.)
Can you tell me a bit about your packaging?
We don’t like to see the environment get damaged. It’s bad for us and bad for birds.
All of our packaging is designed with your birds and their environment in mind. We always minimise waste and our materials are either all fully recyclable or completely reusable.
Our sacks are made of jute, which is a strong, biodegradable and compostable material. We've made our sacks reusable by including a zipper on each. The zipper keeps your bird food fresher for longer and makes it perfect for storage once all of your seed is used up. We've used our jute sacks to store garden tools and have even filled one with compost to make a pretty DIY pot!
Our sacks are tightly sealed to minimise any damage in transit.
What else is in the delivery?
To us, wild bird feeding is about so much more than bird food.
Each of your deliveries contains more than just bird food. You will always receive inserts to learn, artwork to appreciate and packaging to inspire.
We often ask why some birds are smaller than others? Which birds you’ll see and hear at different times of the year and why? And, so importantly, how can the magic of birds help you slow down and relax?
We’re fascinated by birds. They have stories to tell. We’re sharing those stories with you!
