Top Tips on how to Help Birds this July!

During the Summer months birds are often in search of food for their young. As you can imagine this is a tiring job, below are some foods that can help our feathered friends: –

Black sunflower seeds, pinhead oatmeal, soaked sultanas, raisins and currants, mealworms, waxworms, good seed mixtures without loose peanuts,

RSPB food bars and summer seed mixture are all good foods to provide. Soft apples and pears cut in half, bananas and grapes are also good.

Some people use soaked dog or cat food and tinned pet foods, but have in mind these may attract magpies, crows and cats. โ€“
