Ivel Valley - Wild Bird Food

 

Ivel Valley Wild Bird Food is part of a family farm business based in the Ivel Valley, Bedfordshire.  The founders, Nick and James Parrish are passionate about bringing beautiful birds to your garden and have spent 5 years developing a unique range of products to help you attract more garden birds to your garden.

At Ivel Valley we have set out to make products that really work and as well to have proper nutritious ingredients.  This is where we came up with the principle of our Ready Peck products which are about having 5 key ingredients – nuts, suet, oats, seed and fruit or insects.  This ensures a mixture of the essential nutritious ingredients for a bird’s well being and survival.  As well these ingredients are those most readily enjoyed by the many species of birds that may visit your garden.

The Ready Peck mixes and suet treats are also about minimising waste.  With the right combination and proportions of seed you will notice that very few seeds are likely to be wasted and our Ready Peck range has no more than 10% of very small seeds, which some birds are less inclined to take.

Making our own suet products is unique to us and we feel that the Ready Peck range is the ultimate in attracting and feeding wild birds.  Birds typically want to be in and out of a feeding station as quickly as possible, wary of being exposed to predators.  This is why we see it as critical to put out food mixes that they will eat, that are nutritious and that they do not have to sift through and potentially waste.  A bird has a limited time on the feeder and it makes sense that they maximise the opportunity with high quality nutritious food.  This is particularly relevant in cold weather where their survival is under such pressure.

For me, the dipper is one of those frustrating birds which, although the species does occur in Wiltshire at the very eastern edge of its range, I have only ever seen it in other parts of the UK.  It is a bird of the tumbling rocky streams that are found in the more mountainous areas of the western British Isles.  Here in Wiltshire the By Brook around Castle Combe and Box is apparently a good place to see it, though I have always been unlucky!  Not so in Devon, where this picture was taken on the East Lyn river in the gorge just above the village of Lynmouth, where a short walk u..
Three cheers for Mr. L
It really is a good job that Carl von Linné (a.k.a. Linnaeus 1707-1778) took the time and trouble to invent a sensible system for naming, classifying and cataloguing the plants and animals that surround us on this planet, otherwise we really wouldn’t know what species we were discussing, especially when names in other languages are taken into account.  The scientific system of binomial classification does at least cross international boundaries with no confusion, and is the naming system of choice in some parts of the world where there are no local alternatives. When I was on a birding..
