I thought it was time for an update sorry to Farbrook Farms for not posting sooner, but I was lucky enough to be sent some fab products as I love feeding the birds that have started coming back into our garden, lately we have seen an increase in sparrows, blackbirds, starlings, and magpies, we even have a regular daily visitor of a pigeon who we have named Percy.
I was sent to review A water drinker which looks like an upside-down bottle on a plate, which I guess basically it is but the slow release means the water lasts for a while as it only releases onto the plate when it sways either in the wind or when a bird is on it having a drink of course when they fly away too it refills always leaving a fresh supply of water for the next bird.
I was also sent a fab ball ring which as you can see is self-explanatory, fill the ring with fat balls and off you go, the circular design enables the birds to sit in the middle of the ring while eating, easy to refill it holds 10 fat balls and you can see at a glance when it needs refilling.
Last but not least the favourite bird product( not by me) definitely a hit with the birds is the fledgeling mix Our Fledgling Mix provides just the nutrition boost that baby birds and their parents need! It’s packed with high-energy ingredients such as suet, peanut grains, sunflower hearts and dried mealworms, enhanced with the calcium-rich oyster shell. All the ingredients are in small pieces – easy for adults to take back to the nest and perfect for even tiny beaks!
Contains pinhead oatmeal, peanut grains (free from aflatoxin), red & white millet, dried mealworms, sunflower hearts, suet pellets, oyster shell grit and canary seed
we use this in the hanging feeders and the bird table where Percy visits every night to enjoy his treat.

Been a bit quiet in the garden lately but hoping the birds make an appearance soon. we have had a few visitors but not as many as last year, I need to acquire more quality food as bought some cheaply from a local shop and they don’t seem to like it at all. What would anyone recommend?
