Here at Haith’s, we believe in the vital role that wild birds play in enriching our lives and ecosystems. As these winged wonders grace our gardens, it is important to understand the challenges they face due to habitat loss. With farming, deforestation, and urbanisation encroaching on natural habitats, the need to offer alternative shelter has never been more pressing.
Due to this, we are proud to launch our ‘Help to Fly’ offers, running throughout February. This initiative aims to inspire our customers to provide nest boxes in their gardens so they can support garden birds this breeding season. We are doing this in line with National Nest Box Week which runs from the 14th to the 21st of February. Initiated by the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), this campaign has been going since 1997. It promotes conservation and raises awareness of the importance of providing suitable nest spaces for garden birds.
Additionally, we’d like to highlight the importance of providing SuperClean seed to the birds that visit your garden. While SuperClean seed comes at a slightly higher cost, the investment ensures numerous benefits. Our seeds are meticulously cleaned through a rigorous process to eliminate any dust that could compromise a bird’s respiratory system. By opting for this premium option, you not only prioritise the health of individual birds, but you also contribute to the broader ecosystem. Therefore, by providing quality seed, you are creating an environment where garden birds can thrive.
For those looking to make a positive impact without breaking the bank, our bargain sale section provides an excellent starting point. Why not consider adding a bag of SuperClean seed alongside your nest boxes? The birds will be very grateful for the extra support during this special time.
Let’s work together to provide garden birds with the best chance this breeding season.
