Winter is a perfect time for enjoying a wide variety of wildlife and birds coming into your garden seeking sanctuary from the harshness of the environment. By providing adequate wildlife and bird care in terms of a safe protected area and food on a regular basis, you can also benefit from watching these fabulous species take advantage of this safe haven.

At Embleys Nurseries, we stock a wide range of high quality products such as Unwins and Tom Chambers , Seeds, Bird Care, Bird Tables and Bird Baths to provide these beautiful birds with adequate protection throughout the cold months. Supplying a regular source of high-energy food on a bird table or station will be something that will gain the trust of the wild birds and ensure that they return safety and survive the winter months.

Ensure that your feeders are kept well stocked on a daily basis along with a fresh supply of water as drinking and bathing is an essential part of the daily routine of birds. For more information regarding Bird Care, we recommend that you visit the RSPB Website to ensure that you are purchasing the appropriate product.

Bird Food

In addition to the natural food that many gardens will provide, more and more adults are supplying birds with supplementary food such as Bird Seed Mixtures, Sunflower Seeds, Nyjer Seeds, Peanuts and Fat Balls, all available in store.

We stock a wide range of Bird Food appropriate for a wide range of species providing all round Bird Care throughout the cold months suitable for any budget.

Bird Tables and Feeders

We have a large variety of Bird Tables available to suit any size of garden. They also come in a variety of colours and styles. When providing food on bird tables please ensure that food is replaced regularly and not left to gather mould, as this can then be harmful to the birds.

There are also many different styles of bird feeders available suitable for hanging from existing structures or trees available within your garden or patio area. Many of the food products sold such as Fat Balls and nuts are purchased in mesh nets. These products should be removed from the mesh prior to being made available to the birds as they can become trapped by their beaks or feet.

We also stock these decorative Bird Feeder Wreaths perfect for hanging up in and around your garden and already full of a range of food for all varieties. These are currently on offer in store.

Bird Houses and Nests

We provide a range of Bird Nests and even have house for other wildlife such as hedgehogs and lady birds. Most of the Bird Nests we provide can be mounted onto existing structures within your garden area and should be purchased in accordance with the type and size of birds that you wish to attract.

The BTO website has a lot of advice regarding the size of bird nests and gives details of many Bird Care Initiatives taking place throughout the year such as National Nest Box Week.
