Nantwich town center was a hive of activity yesterday (Saturday) as once again we staged host to the Battle Of Nantwich re-enactment by the The Sealed Knot - always a worthwhile spectacle! (http://www.battleofnantwich.co.uk/).
The Farmers Market was also in attendance and Nantwich Traditional Market was open as usual offering high quality goods at very reasonable prices. Lucky customers visiting Nantwich Traditional Market were greeted with a tipple of sherry and crinkled crisps - delicious. (www.nantwichmarket.co.uk).
Midday saw a rather hefty thunder storm hit us with a full-on assault with rain, hailstones, wind, thunder and lightening hitting us hard! Tough conditions for any trader who attends the outdoor market! However, it only lasted for about 1 hour - or thereabouts - and then everything was calm again.
All in all a great day that was enjoyable but challenging to say the least!
Roll on next year.
Nantwich Town & Local Customers to benefit from lower bird food prices - just in time for feeding garden birds during the winter months!
Here at Gala Wildlife we're constantly trying to bring you better value - and seen as winter is here and our garden birds are now flocking to our feeders; we thought we'd take a look at our large bags of bird food to see if could give a helping hand.
Check out New Prices page for details.
MORE BEING ADDED SO KEEP COMING BACK AND REMEMBER IT ALSO INCLUDES OUR FREE LOCAL DELIVERY SERVICE!
Don't forget the Early Bird Survey which takes place tomorrow (9th January).
It will require participants to get up before dawn to watch your feeding station/location and to list the first 10 different species to arrive. It's an excellent opportunity to help gather vital information about our garden bird behaviour and best completed with a large mug of tea, of course!
I'm sure plenty of our Nantwich customers are likely to be helping in this information gathering exercise, and if you do, please let us know if you visit Nantwich Market to buy some bird food from our stall or, when I deliver via our FREE LOCAL DELIVERY SERVICE.
Have fun and enjoy.
We have only ONE left in stock so grab a bargain!
RRP £17.95. WAS £15.00. NOW REDUCED TO £10.95!
As the name suggests - the Versatile Squirrel Baffle can be used in a number of ways.
The conventional way to use this baffle is by attaching it to a feeding station pole (pole diameter up-to 25.4mm) below the feeders, thereby obstructing squirrels (and cats) from climbing or jumping onto the feeders. Alternatively, it can be hung above a bird feeder (see pic) to stop squirrels etc. from climbing down onto the feeder.
Comes complete with various attachments and instructions.

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.

We get the occasional customer who visits us asks "what is the best mixed seed to give my garden birds?."
It's always a tricky question to answer to be honest and, one which doesn't sit comfortably with me for fear of recommending a mix which - once purchased - doesn't get consumed as well as my customer would expect.
I can give a general explanation about various seed mixes and how some species of wild birds will prefer as certain seed over another but, it really is down to your location and what your birds prefer in that area. Ultimately, the best advice I can give is to try different seed mixes to see which goes best in your locatity; or ask a neighbour what they feed and that should give you some ideas.
If you're new to feeding the birds then purchase a small packet initially and see how it goes, and what birds it attracts. But do remember -
