Wildflowers for the birds!

 

 Prepped and ready for action!

It's the BIG GARDEN BIRDWATCH this weekend!

We never need too much encouragement to spend an hour watching the birds, but this is a great way to contribute to a national survey of species.

The survey takes place from 27-29th January and the RSPB offers some excellent advice for the cosiest of birdwatching:

"Make sure it's comfy and you have the essentials within easy reach - a nice, hot drink and your favourite biscuits - and somewhere to jot down what you see. On the website we've got a nifty counting tool to help you keep track of what you've seen."
Plus, if you don't have a garden, apparently you can take part at your local park or green space. A perfect excuse for a bit of fresh air!
 
While you're spending time gazing at the birds, it's a great opportunity to look at what they're feeding on. Many bird species love the nuts and seeds that are placed out for them, but wildflowers can offer a feast too! They attract insects, which many bird species feed on, but also the flowers themselves can be an important part of their diet.
 
So, if you'd like to see more birds in your garden at the next BIG GARDEN BIRDWATCH think about what wildflowers might attract them in - or, let Seedball do the thinking for you...

 

Yes, that's right, fanfare please!

We've got some super special #wildflowers4wildlife mixes coming your way this week!

We are very excited!

We've developed the range in collaboration with scientists from the Natural History Museum and there is one in particular that will bring the birds flocking! It will be available online at www.seedball.co.uk from 1st February, so until then keep an eye on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for more information.
