It’s the big garden bird watch this weekend (27th – 29th Jan 2018). This event which for the last few years has helped improve some species of birds populations rise and recorded what birds we find over here in the UK. We all know that feeding the birds year round helps but what else can?
'Gone With The Wind' (Tips & Tricks for Bird Feeding in Extreme Winds!)
Sometimes its more than your hair that gets messy in the wind! In adverse weather conditions bird seed can get blown about and feeders get knocked off their perches. We thought it might be a good idea to list some useful tips and tricks that we have found helpful in getting one over the terrible weather we can get here in the UK!
Suet Candles, Cakes & Coconuts
Suet is an excellent and nutritious food that delivers a quick source of energy. It boasts so many good benefits that it is essential throughout the year, particularly during winter. It is very high in protein, calories and energy and is easy for birds to eat and digest, meaning they can get easily get a quick and fulfilling burst, without too much exertion. It is a substantial and healthy feed that can be fed all year around as well as during critical stage of a bird's growth.
Here at Brinvale, all of our suet is the finest quality and is a rich blend of high percentage suet and seeds and contains absolutely no fillers or alternate ingredients.
We stock a range of suet varieties including our best selling deluxe suet balls. Made from pure suet, these suet balls are soft, tasty and loved by all birds. We also stock several other varieties of suet balls as well as fat balls. All of our suet or fat balls are soft and due to their size, are easy to feed on and digest. It is best if they are fed from a specialised suet ball feeder and here at Brinvale, we have a large variety including ones which are squirrel resistant.
As well as our suet balls, we stock a great range of Suet feasts, which come in a huge variety of flavours. These, as well as our Jumbo bars can be fed from a table or be hung in a specialised feeder.
Our Suet coconuts and candles include their own handle so they can be hung anywhere that you require. This makes them a very easy and quick feed which is especially useful during the winter months.
Over 80 species of birds are known to be attracted to suet including; woodpeckers, nuthatches, starlings and jays.
In warmer months, be sure to keep suet out of direct sunlight but placed close by in an area of shade. Suet can also be refridgerated during hot periods.
