I have come across some new food pellets for birds and have bought a 2kg pack with my other purchase of suet pellets to see how they go. Not cheap so would be best to mix with other high protein food and use say during the winter months. The pellets are called britbits superfood bird food pellets. They have a seed called ancient quinoa grain, which is very high in protein. Not cheap, but mixed with other food should help it go farther. Only one supplier that I know of, and their own invention. They are actually farmers who make and grow a lot of their own bird food.

Called Ivel Valley wild bird food. And find it in suet pellets. Be interesting to see how well the pellets are received by the birds.

It seems the cooler, damper weather has re-ignited my sparrow's appetites. The consumption of the seed mix had dropped off noticeably but now they are back to breeding time levels. :)
