Be prepared for the Big Garden Birdwatch!

Different foods will help to attract different species. For example, Robins adore meal-worms and Goldfinches are mad about Nyjer Seed so as a general rule the more varieties you put out the more species you are likely to attract. To make sure that each and every bird gets adequate food to meet their needs the best solution is to fill your feeders regularly.

Fat products are a popular choice during the winter months as they give the birds a vital energy boost, which is just what they need in cold weather. High energy foods such as Sunflower Hearts are also highly recommended, by bird food experts CJ Wildlife, as they help the birds to take on calories quickly and efficiently. You can also consider putting out additional feeders to cope with demand and it is advised to avoid disturbing the feeding areas during the first and last hours of the day when they are at their busiest.

The Big Garden Birdwatch has generated some interesting findings over the last 30 years and helps to give a snap shot of bird populations across the different regions. Ornithologist, Martin George, from CJ Wildlife commented “Surveys like this one, along with our own on-going research, help to highlight dramatic declines such as those seen in House sparrows, where the population has more than halved since the mid-70s. We can then help to educate the public and develop products and foods to try to restore declining populations.”

CJ Wildlife stock a wide range of high energy foods including Sunflower Hearts, Peanuts and Peanut Cakes and are pleased to offer expert advice to ensure that your garden birds are well cared for this winter.
