Over the years, I’ve tried many different bird foods. I’ve discovered that some are much better than others! Many are packed with cheap fillers like wheat that the RSPB say are only really suitable for pigeons. Also, there’s a bewildering range to choose from, I counted up to 22 different feeds recently ranging from winter warmers to special feeds for specific birds. On reflection, I thought this is daft. I wanted one food to attract the widest range of birds all year round. I also wanted it to be really good for them, providing maximum energy for minimum effort (this is crucial in the winter when birds, like blue tits can spend up to 85% of their daytime feeding just to survive). I talked to the leading experts in Europe and they helped me develop my own, very special bird food.
