The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch starts next Friday!
The Big Garden Birdwatch takes part every year with people across the country recording which species of wild bird visit their garden over the period of one hour.
“The fact that we’ve lost 38 million birds from UK skies in the last 50 years underlines that nature is in crisis. We see it in our own back gardens with house sparrows struggling and starlings undergoing a severe decline. As a conservation charity, your Birdwatch results help us monitor how our UK birds are faring in the face of the nature and climate emergency. But we can’t do it without your support. By taking part in Big Garden Birdwatch you, and hundreds of thousands of other like-minded nature lovers, will be taking action to protect our birds for generations to come” – RSPB.
Some common birds you might spot in your garden include…
Are you taking part? The best way to attract birds to your garden is with high quality bird feed on table tops or in feeders. The Copdock Mill Wild Bird range is available in stores now and online. We stock a variety of mixes, nuts seeds and suet!
Founded in 1912 by Herbert George Gladwell, Copdock Mill originally started as a country mill. Over the years, Copdock Mill has diversified, but it still remains a family owned brand. The Gladwell family have been making Wild Bird Seed for more than 40 years.
It is well-documented that natural habitats and feeding grounds are declining. Our indigenous and visiting bird population need other sources to supplement their feeding requirements. The Gladwell family were one of the first to act on this information back in the mid 1970s and produced a seed mix called “Supreme Wild Bird” and the Copdock Mill Wild Bird range was born.
Over the years the range has grown and developed. From the one mix to numerous specially formulated wild bird mixes. With a long history in developing and manufacturing wild bird mixes, Copdock Mill have also added other new products to give you a complete range of wild bird feed and accessories to choose from.
All of their Wild Bird feed mixes are blended here in the UK using the finest quality ingredients. These are sourced from local farmers where possible, supporting local communities and reducing their carbon footprint. Additionally, seed mix bags are also made from recyclable plastic.
