I thought I’d keep a note of how much bird food I’m using and where better than here on birdtablenews.
Today I bought
12.75kg OF NATURE’S FEAST FEEDER SUPREME. Price £10.99
It is a seed mixture that includes sunflower, dari and millet. It is for seed feeders. This bird food attracts a lot of birds including Great Tits and Coal Tits, blackbirds, chaffinches, greenfinch, goldfinch, doves, starlings, tree sparrows and house sparrows
12.75kg GUARDMAN NO MESS SEED MIX – Price £15.49
It can be fed in bird feeders, bird feeders and on the ground.
Among the birds this bird food attracts are greenfinchyes, chaffinches, nuthatches, blue tits, siskins, dunnocks, blackbirds, song thrushes and sparrows.
Oh dear. I seem to have bought two bags of bird food that attract similar birds.
I already have some blacksunflower seeds and Natures Feast High Energy Supreme.
I also put out cut up cheese and apple.
It will be interesting to see the dates that I (I mean the birds) finish both these bags.
If it doesn’t snow then I don’t put as much out.
My assorted flock of garden birds gets through a lot of bird food. All the different varieties of birds do seem to act as ‘one flock’. Chaffinches, blackbirds, wrens, thrushes, sparrows, pigeons seem to act as one flock.
I have sent in my Big Garden Birdwatch Results. that is a good job done.
