How do birds keep warm in Winter?
There are many great things about the winter; frosty mornings, Christmas and of course, cosying up by the fire on cold winter evenings.
Winter Wildlife Watch: What happens to the seaside through Winter!
As an island, the UK is extremely lucky in the fact that the seaside and the stunning British coastline is never too far away.
Swan & Duck
Although bread, cereal, crackers and other savoury feeds are common to feed Ducks and Swans, they are warned against as they are extremely harmful. They contain high levels of carbohydrates, sugars and salts which cause malnutrition in birds and can also pollute the water, making it harmful for other aquatic life. There are plenty of alternate foods that are much more suitable to feed and that do not cause harm to wildfowl or other aquatic creatures. Corn, grapes, oats, wheat, lettuce, vegetable trimmings and peas for example are all suitable, along with specialised developed Swan and Duck Food. Our best selling Floating Swan and Duck Food is not only packed with nutrients but it is also designed to float on the surface of the water so that birds can feed in a natural way. It contains all of the right nutrients that Swan and Ducks require including Soya Oil, Fish Meal, and Maize and it is packed with protein, fibre, fat and essential oils.
