Gardman Advice on the Best Bird Foods for Winter:
A high energy seed mix - a staple requirement for wild birds for energy, vitamins, minerals and oils - suggest either Gardman No Grow or Winter Warmer
Sunflower hearts - a true super food for wild birds with more calorific value, oils and energy than peanuts and eaten more readily by birds due to softer and smaller.
Suets - an essential high energy food for winter to allow wild birds to survive the cold weather. A selection of suets helps to provide this to all wild birds. This includes
Suet balls - a widely fed suet product, for maximum energy I would suggest our new premium fat snax or Ernest Charles fat snax due to their sgnificantly higher energy than others
Suet rolls - an ultra high energy food fed in the same way as suet balls
Suet feasts - a high energy alternative to suet balls with softer suet for easier feeding and higher energy
Suet treats - bite size high energy suet treats, feeds quicker and prefered by many birds. A real favourite of robins
Mealworms - with a lack of natural occuring insects, these are the nearest available alternative to the natural thing. High in protein and energy
The robin is the uk's favourite garden bird, to attract and provide the best for this beautiful bird over the winter you should:
1) provide feeding locations that are from a platform, feeding tray, ground feeder or bird table - robins prefer feeding from a flat surface and tend to be reluctant to feed from hanging feeders
2) provide a high energy mix of their favourite foods including
Robin seed mix / Winter Warmer - robin seed mix is a mix specifically for robins but Winter Warmer allows you to provide everything they like and focus on attracting the most birds
Sunflower hearts are a favourite with high energy and easy to break seed they are a winner
Mealworms - a close resemblance to insects in a robin's natural diet and great for attracting many other species too
Suet - suet treats are a favourite of robins as they are perfect bite size and packed with calories.
So there you have all the info you need to get the most of your garden birds.
