Being an avid fan of feeding wild birds and other wildlife in-and-around our garden, it's always a treat when something happens by sheer chance and coincidence. And it does get much better than when that coincidence benefits other wildlife, too.
For instance - most of our feeders generally have black sunflower seeds in the tube feeder to some degree, as we know they are a great source of food for our visiting birds. However, for reasons beyond our knowing the odd sunflower seed gets redistributed in the garden by some untidy little blighter who, as yet, hasn't managed to strip the outer husk off the seed and drops it.
It's a question which crops up periodically and especially when customers are purchasing our bird food at Nantwich market. It's a good question and one I would - in principle - agree with!
I fundamentally agree with the question because in my view all garden birds should have access to an abundance of naturally occurring food sources. However, it is apparent that humans are having quite an impact on the environment and one which is negative to wildlife.
