The National Trust wild bird food range launches new website


A D V E R T I S I N G    F E A T U R E

The National Trust wild bird food range is the product of a five-year licensed partnership and the name is now a familiar one in several high street outlets as well as in selected National Trust shops. Now for the first time the complete range can now be bought online via a new website at www.nationaltrustwildbirdfood.co.uk.

The National Trust wild bird food range includes several popular 'straight' options such as Sunflower Hearts, Nyjer Seed and Peanuts as well as specially developed mixes including their Gourmet Ground Mix and Fancy Feeder Mix. All are sourced and blended to meet National Trust's ethical and environmental standards. In addition there is a wide choice of suet products and mealworms that can also be ordered online and delivered direct to your door.

As might be expected from a National Trust licensed product there has been no compromise with quality, and the mixes offer high percentages of seeds important for providing nutrients throughout the year. Most of the ingredient seeds are sourced from within the UK and many are Red Tractor assured.

The quality of the National Trust range may be high but the pricing compares favourably with many of the big names in the wild bird food market; sunflower hearts, the most popular purchase for garden bird feeding, are up to 32 percent cheaper than alternatives available. In addition for those keen to support charities with their purchasing power all the profits National Trust make from this range go towards supporting the large number of great houses and ancient monuments and over 250,000 hectares of land including over 700 miles of coastline managed by the National Trust. Birders will be familiar with some of the many great sites for birds supported by the National Trust such as the Farne Islands, Blakeney Point NNR, Hickling Broad and many more.

As well as the wild bird food the new website offers some interesting garden-bird-related content including a Garden Bird Gallery incorporating a monthly 'Photo of the Month' competition with wild bird food prizes for winners, and a garden bird guide aimed at helping with identification of all the common British garden species, including songs and calls that can be accessed for each featured species. Regular stories and news on garden birds are featured in a Garden Bird News section, including a regular 'In My Garden' feature retelling stories and sharing pictures of unusual visitors to gardens around Britain.
