Many of our customers want to attract Goldfinches into their gardens, but find they are only visited occasionally or have neighbours nearby that have several or even flocks of goldfinches feeding from feeders on a regular basis, the simple answer maybe they are feeding niger seed a small rich oil seed, that's high in energy, easy to digest and extremely fine. Goldfinches, Tits, Repoll and Siskins are all attracted to this small black seed and is often referred to on chat forums and websites as the goldfinch magnet, that must be fed from a specialist niger seed feeder, so why not try a 25kg Niger Seed bulk bag with free delivery?
We suggest you place your wild bird food out at the beginning of each day to allow birds to replace the energy lost overnight and then top up the bird food mid afternoon if necessary, to ensure your garden attracts as many birds as possible!
Wild Bird Food - Feeding Advice
If you want to attract a wide variety of birds to your garden, it is important to offer a good selection of wild bird food, but it is not necessary to spend lots of money on specialist seed mixes that you may not need! If you have not fed the wild birds that visit your garden before, we would suggest you start with a few Fat Balls, Black Sunflower Seed or Sunflower Hearts and Peanuts which can be used in feeders, on bird tables or on the ground, in a variety of places in your garden, including a few peaceful areas for timid wild birds to encourage as many colourful songbirds into your garden.
Sunflower Hearts are basically a birds equivalent to fast food, as the black outer shell of the sunflower seeds have been removed for them leaving the nutritious hearts, but unlike many prepared supermarket meals are a healthy option that is convenient for all wild bird species, as many smaller birds simply can't remove the tough outer shell of a sunflower, so it makes sense for many of our customers wanting to attract a variety of birds to feed hearts instead, even though they are more expensive!
By placing these foods around your garden you should attract a wide variety of wild bird species, commonly found in the majority of gardens in the UK. As you gain confidence you can add some specialist seed varieties, such as Niger Seed and Hemp or even Dried Mealworms to increase and broaden your gardens appeal to a larger selection of wild bird species, including Woodpeckers, Buntings and Nuthatches.

We recommend that if you feed whole peanuts to your wild birds, they are fed from a wire mesh feeder, because smaller birds and fledglings can choke on the valuable food source. But it's also advisable not to feed fat or bread during the spring and summer, especially if food is scarce as parents with young fledglings may be tempted to feed these alternatives, if natural foods such as insects, caterpillars and earthworms become unavailable.
Please note that all the bulk wild bird food varieties, featured on this website do not include whole nuts for that reason, so that any of the bird foods you select can be safely fed from a tubular seed feeder or bird table without worrying, but you can always purchase them separately in 25kg sacks.
Many of the premium wild bird food varieties shown on the website, use peanut granules instead of whole peanuts as the bite sized pieces are easy to digest and appeal to a large variety of wild birds, including the smaller bird species that are less likely to choke on the granules, that are just as nutritious as nuts or splits and high in calories, energy, fibre and fat.
We also advise customers to have multiple bird feeding sites, within the garden to prevent overcrowding, but also to move wild bird feeders around regularly to prevent a buildup of droppings, that can spread disease and bacteria and clean feeders at least once a month. Please note we only sell grade 1 aflatoxin tested safe nuts and seeds, including whole peanuts, granules, splits and monkey nuts that have NOT been stored in a warehouse for months on end, before being sold for wild bird food. Fat rich foods like sunflower hearts or bird nuts if exposed to moderate levels of humidity can go mouldy and develop dangerous levels of toxins that birds simply can't process, so it's very important to keep your bird food stored in a cool dry place.
