The sparrows adore it and we've had loads more finches and tits visiting than usual. Even the robins come in twos and threes.
Don't hesitate to buy this for your birds; its a big VfM 12.5kg bag, there is no mess, a great mix of seed, but the bag is also very strong so it's unlikely to burst open.
I've also added a couple of photos of my own at the top of the page so you see what you're getting.
The packaging is a joke!
You get 20kg in two paper bags separated by a plastic kitchen bin liner, all of which falls apart as soon as you touch it.
Unless you have a reedy made container to deposit the seeds into, you are likely to be disappointed at the mess all over the floor.
I've always put out peanuts and mixed seed but, the peanuts are hardly ever eaten. In fact, they often go rotten in the feeder - what a waste. The mixed seed is reluctantly eaten by the sparrows - half a feeder in 4 weeks is pointless though. I've even tried fat balls with insects but the only birds interested in those are the starlings.
If you only put out one food type for the birds, this is the one to go for. It's simple and clean, and appears to attract the greatest variety of birds.
It stores well because it is in a plastic sack rather than some of the cheaper food which comes in paper sacks and has to be stored carefully to stop it becoming damp.
This 12.75 Kg bag contains a large amount of seed and, if you have never fed it before or seen Goldfinches in the area, I would suggest you get a smaller quantity to start with to ensure you get sufficient takers. Although Nyger seed is supposed to be eaten by other birds including Nuthatches, I have only seen Goldfinches and their young at my feeders (although they do gorge themselves and that may mean other birds don't have a chance to feed).
Nyger seed feeders are made of plastic and have only a couple of small holes through which the seed is plucked by the birds. Even so, a great deal of seed is simply dropped by the birds and so something under the feeder is essential unless you want to grow thistles. You could just place something on the ground to collect dropped seeds but it is possible to buy trays that bolt to the underside of the feeder so you have an all-in-one feeder.
If you don't want to get a Nyger seed feeder, Goldfinches are also really partial to sunflower hearts, which can be fed from a standard feeder and offer a good food source that seems to appeal to all species.
Birds seen feeding include Great Tits, Blue Tits, Sparrows Collard Doves, and Starlings, Woodpigeons and a few Magpies seem attracted as well. Not as good as the Premium product
The quality of the seed is not too bad but with cracked or milled product evident, very dusty - birds seem to eat one drop one but this is cleared up by the woodies..
Not the worst bird seed I have tried but in my opinion the Extra Select Premium Wild Bird I have reviewed elsewhere is a much better product and I would buy that instead.
