Supplementary Feeding

bird

Mixtures to suit farmland birds

Farmland birds often become vulnerable to starvation during winter when natural sources run out. To ensure they enter spring in the best possible condition for breeding and survival, supplementary feeding during the ‘hungry gap’ (from December to April) is vital. There is evidence that a variety of farmland birds switch to this additional food source when natural seed is depleted over winter and many have seen it deliver great results for the bird populations on their farm.

Kings provides expert advice and can supply a range of seed mixtures designed specifically to support supplementary feeding. When working with our advisors you'll have access to:

Supplementary Feeding Record Book

Kings Supplementary Feeding Diary FCGiven the need (for agreement compliance reasons) to record details such as your regular feeding locations, seed mixtures and volume of feed used, we have created a supplementary feeding record book. This can be used across the year to support your ongoing feeding activity.

The guide is weatherproof with a design that allows for convenient storage in the vehicle cab, next to the feed store or in your jacket pocket. It comes with enough space to note observations, along with a useful bird ID chart to help you recognise some of the key species.

Created using heavy-duty materials, the feeders are weatherproof and sturdy, with replacement parts easy to fit to help with longevity.
