Nyjer seed is a great way of attracting one of our most colourful wild birds, the Goldfinch, to your garden. These eye catching visitors often feed in small flocks and will make a real splash of colour around your feeders. Because of their high oil content Nyjer seeds are full of energy. It's fine, easy flowing nature means that it's best fed using one of our special LokTop Nyjer seed feeders as this will help to avoid unnecessary spillage. The special micro feed ports dispense the seeds efficiently with the minimum of waste.
Nyjer seeds can be fed year round.
Dunnocks, Greenfinches, Goldfinches, Siskins and other species
We recommend feed wild birds year round, in Autumn and Winter when natural food is scarce and in Spring and Summer to help parents when they are rearing their young.
Put out feed early in the morning and toward late afternoon
When feeding from the ground, scatter the feed, do not 'pile' it.
Only put out sufficient food for one day. Remove uneaten and stale food promptly.
Make sure clean fresh water, is available at all times for drinking and bathing.
Using different types of feeding methods will encourage a wider variety of birds to visit your garden. Try feeding from the ground, on bird tables and using hanging feeders
Keep your feeding stations, feeders and accessories clean. Regularly wash them using a suitable disinfectant and rinse thoroughly after using clean water.
Move feeders, bird tables etc. frequently to prevent a build-up of unhygienic deposits.
Store in the cool, dark & dry place
