Feeding the birds has become a bit of a fine art. If you are already an ardent bird feeder you will know that the range on offer at the garden centres can be confusing and overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be like that. There’s a fantastic bird food that’s designed to not only feed your garden birds to keep them in the best possible health that you can use all year round, and that will also make your life easier too.

Richard’s Premium Bird Food is full of high energy ingredients to feed the birds all year round

Richard Jackson’s Premium Bird Food has been developed to be the very best that you can buy. It’s designed to attract the widest range of bird species to your garden all year round. And it’s packed with high-energy ingredients to feed them better. Now in a new formulation that’s even better than ever, complete with all the other much-loved ingredients including 13 natural components each chosen for their special benefits for the birds. The new improved recipe also contains whole sunflower hearts so that the birds get even more energy, it’s been enhanced with extra high energy suet pellets with more goodness in each pellet and it contains wholesome oat groats which are health packed oats that are cleaner and easier for the birds to digest.

Why is it different?

It helps attracts more birds because the seeds are different sizes, this provides food for birds with different size beaks. One customer told us our bird food attracted 44 different species of birds to her garden – you can read about it here.

It feeds them better because every ingredient has been chosen for its goodness. Sunflower hearts are a rich source of oils and proteins, suet pellets are a fast acting source of energy (literally a super food loved by all birds especially robins) while oyster grit provides a natural source of calcium which is essential for the fledglings during the spring and summer seasons and helps the adult birds to lay stronger egg shells.

There is no waste: All of the seeds in this special mix can be eaten, so there are no messy husks to clear up. If any of the seeds fall to the ground and aren’t eaten by ground feeding birds like blackbirds, robins, chaffinches or wrens, then hedgehogs love the bird food too.

It’s versatile: You don’t need to buy different foods for different feeders. This premium bird food can be presented to your birds in bird feeders, or on bird tables and ground feeders.

Richard explains “I’ve worked with leading bird food specialists to develop this HIGH ENERGY and NO WASTE PREMIUM BIRD FOOD.

It has been lovingly created to attract and nourish the widest range of beautiful garden birds all year round.

Unlike ordinary bird foods, it’s not padded out with cheap fillers like wheat flakes; every single ingredient has been carefully selected to provide them with just what they need. And now, it really is better than ever! I’ve added some special new suet pellets that are packed with even more energy as well as whole sunflower hearts so there’s even more for the birds to enjoy.

What’s more, I’ve included oat groats, which are cleaner (so less dust) and easier for the birds to digest. All the other much loved ingredients are still in the mix including protein rich dried mealworms, nutrient packed seeds and calcium rich oyster grit. All the seeds can be eaten by the birds so there are no messy husks to clear up after the birds have been feeding.” And for the whole of January 2020 it is Product of the Month on QVC uk.

So what’s in it?

Every ingredient in this premium bird food is for the birds. There are no fillers, or bulking agents to make it look better than it really is. That means the birds eat everything. Here’s a list of the main ingredients with Richard explaining why they are included.

Sunflower Hearts – I’ve included plenty of whole Sunflower hearts in the pack, as the birds simply love them! It’s their favourite food because they’re a rich source of oil and protein, and they are full of energy and goodness. My special sunflower hearts have had the seed coats removed so it’s quick and easy for birds to eat and so they get maximum energy for minimum effort – it’s their equivalent of very healthy fast food!

Kibbled Peanuts – Rich in protein, fibre and oils, peanuts are a superb source of energy and are one of the most popular year round foods for a wide range of birds. Whole peanuts can be a choking hazard for young birds; my kibbled peanuts are broken into smaller pieces so they are easier and safer to eat.

Oats – My oat groats include all the natural fibre rich oat bran, and provide a concentrated source of energy and natural oils. They’re also easier for the birds to digest than traditional oats.

Hempseed – These oil rich seeds contain essential amino acids and Vitamin E and they provide much needed source of protein for garden birds.

Nyjer Seed – Oil rich and ideal for birds with delicate bills. Goldfinches love nyjer seed.

Suet Pellets – One of the best sources of fat and protein, my pellets attract and nourish a wide range of birds. They are especially valuable during the colder months when natural sources of food and nutrients are scarce. These premium higher energy pellets contain no fillers (like calcium carbonate) and are made with natural colourants.

Oyster Grit – This provides garden birds and fledglings with a natural source of calcium, which is essential during the breeding season.

Dried Mealworms – One of the finest natural food sources, rich in energy and protein, and especially loved by robins and fledgling birds.
