Bird food

I am looking for a good all round bird food.

I used to be able to buy a large bag of bird food from our local garden centre .  This bird food  suited all the birds that visit my garden.  They don’t stock it any more.  I asked why and was told ‘they seem to stop everything that is good’


So I’ve had to buy different small bags of bird food, which is very confusing.


I particularly don’t want the blackbirds and thrushes to miss out.  A lot of bird food I’ve seen doesn’t cover blackbirds and thrushes.  I could be looking in the wrong places.

The really cold part of winter must hit us soon and I want to be stocked up with bird food as I hate to see my garden birds flitting round an empty bird feeder just as dusk is approaching.   I have a six mile trip before I get to a shop and in the snow that is not a good idea.

Am thinking of using Ernst Charles.  I’ll take a proper look tomorrow, but the beauty of it is it seems good bird food and it can be delivered to my door, as  I’m 64 years old and that is a good thing.  It would mean I don’t have to cart big bags of bird food around.
