Buy sunflower hearts, better than nuts.

I feed Peanuts and Sunflower Hearts in the winter but in spring I use only Sunflower Hearts - Huge change in garden visitors - This morning on the feeders: 6 Lesser Redpoll, 17 Siskin, 3 Greenfinch. 5 Goldfinch, 1 G S Woodpecker (although he prefers the peanuts)....
+ on the floor below: 2 Dunnock, 2 Male Blackbird, 5 Chaffinch, 1 Woodpigeon, 4 House sparrows...
All in 15 minutes..
This pattern continues throughout the day - costs me a fortune....

No, just a small town in Wales, although I do have a large (bird, bee and butterfly friendly) garden..

I've always wondered about bird lovers buying food produced from intensively farmed land using huge quantities of petroleum based pesticides and fertilisers, and then packaging them in plastic before flying and driving them to your doorstep using even more petrol.

Instead of having an agriculture policy that kept hedgerows in fields and took it easy on the toxic gick, so birds kept at least some of their remaining habitat. I know it is not a simple either or choice at an individual level, but it still feels counterintuitive.

This has little to do with bird lovers feeding birds. I buy baking grade foods fit for human consumption which, although expensive, gives me a little peace of mind. We all pine for the days of non intensive farming practices and hundreds of miles of hedgerows but sadly it's in the hands of the consumers who want to feed their families and supermarkets who control the markets, and, of course, politicians who don't care enough. Until then, I will try to help keep my local bird population alive until something does change.

P.S. I am not a bird lover Per se, but have studied Ornithology amongst other things. I welcome everything into my garden, from Dragonflies to Moles...(Although I do get annoyed at the neighbors cats who seem intent on destroying everything that moves.. oh, and possibly Grey Squirrels).

Haha.. No Partridge but do have 2 or 3 Pheasant visit in the winter. GSW visit every day, Saw a GW by the pond last summer and occasionally see LSW in amongst the flocks of tits in winter. Very lucky here as my neighbor has an amazing garden with woodland (open to the public in summer under the National Gardens Scheme) so get a fair share of woodland birds too.
