You can put bird food directly onto the ground, though this can present some problems which include attracting rodents at night if all the food isn’t eaten during the day.
Ground Feeders & Bird Tables
Not all species of wild bird that come to gardens can use hanging feeders, so providing a bird table or ground tray ensures that all species are able to feed. Ground feeders will help attract Blackbirds, Robins, Pied Wagtails, Dunnocks and Collared Doves.
Our range includes wooden bird tables and metal ground feeding trays. These are suitable for a range of bird food, including straight and mixed birdseed, suet, live mealworms and chopped peanuts. What's more, garden bird tables are a great way to watch birds more easily, as they often allow greater numbers to feed together with less squabbling as individuals don’t have to battle for a perch as they do on a hanging feeder. To ensure that no harmful bacteria develop on the surface of the bird table or ground feeder, surfaces must be kept clean on a regular basis
We offer several different bird tables and ground feeders, including freestanding, hanging and wall-mounted types.
