    Our ‘grain mountain’ is dwindling and were hoping to carry on the supplementary feeding for another three or four weeks.

    Is anybody able to help in purchasing a 25kg sack of this? https://www.gardenwildlifedirect.co.uk/no-wheat-wild-bird-seed-mix.html

    The birds are fond of sunflower chips and we have a good few kilos of those in stock (in my back room) but this particular mix is going down well too.

    Cheers,
    Dan.

    I hope you and Mal don’t mind. To keep the project going until Spring I have ordered a bag of sunflower hearts to be dropped off at the above address. It should be with you in the next seven days. I have been able on a handful of occasions to see the results at the station. Remarkable. With the number of chaffinches it is quite surprising a brambling hasn’t cropped up….perhaps in passing soon??

    Many thanks Mal and Eddy. This will definitely keep us going until Mid-March when there will be a breeding season hiatus until the autumn.
