How to: Feed Birds

Look after the nation's favourite bird, the lovely robin, with our guide to their favourite foods.

Winter and the beginning of spring can be tough for wild birds that need water and the right foods to survive. Contrary to popular opinion, dry bread is a definite no for small wild birds. Instead follow our feeding guide below to find out the best foods for each type of British bird. With the high protein content found in our dried mealworms and the miracles that suet and fat balls can have on fat reserves, you can help keep the birds chipper over winter and spring. Browse online and visit us in-store to shop our selection of bird foods, feeders, baths and more to get everything you'll need. We're sure the birds will thank you with their beautiful singing!
