Johnston & Jeff Selected Wild Bird Food (1kg bag)
An all year round seed blend with a higher proportion of black oil sunflower seeds for correct nutritional values. Designed to attract the widest variety of birds while using one type of feed.
It contains small seeds as well as cereals plus vegetable oil to increase feeding values.
Does NOT contain cheap fillers such as whole oats which have little nutritional value. Excellent for hanging feeders and can also be fed from a table. If two feeding points are used [feeder and table] then there are very few birds which will not take this mix.
Suitable for: Tits, Bramblings, Finches, Buntings, Dunnocks, Sparrow, Linnet, Nuthatch, Siskin, Yellow Hammer.
Johnston & Jeff Sunflower Hearts (1kg)
These are bakery grade kernels produced from black oil sunflower seeds. This means they are from the sunflower which contains the highest levels of oil and therefore energy rather than the confectionery grade hearts which are mainly taken from medium and large striped sunflower. Our sunflower hearts are also put through a sortex machine which uses lasers to colour detect any black husk still remaining so producing a uniform and totally husk free sample.
Suitable for: Virtually all birds with the exception of maybe Pipits and Wrens which may take these if mealworms and insects are not available.
Johnston & Jeff: Black Oil Sunflower Seed (1kg bag)
Sourced generally from Europe and the UK this is high oil black sunflower, which has also been selected and correctly harvested to produce the maximum oil content.
Black oil sunflower must not be harvested late – this produces a high acid content – and must be fully matured – or you just get empty husks.
Our black oil sunflower seeds are also screened and graded and then a little vegetable oil is added to give them extra shine so the birds can spot them more easily [it’s true!] plus they are absorbing nutrients even as they remove the husks to get at the seeds themselves.
All critical for the long term health of our birds.
Johnston & Jeff: Niger Seed (1kg Bag)
A superb little seed, easily digested, and high in oils, protein and energy. It is said to be a natural tonic. Not to be confused with Thistle for which it is often mistaken (and often mis-sold). It’s very light so use a Niger Feeder or it will blow away.
Excellent for: Tits, Finches and Siskins – and Fledglings
Calorific Value 615 kCals/100g

Johnston & Jeff: Peanuts (1kg bag)
There are many different varieties and grades of nut. We choose the best from Runner or Virginia varieties. We avoid lower grades and ensure that our nuts are fresh AND free from mould and infestation. Ours are high in oils, proteins and energy and are an invaluable high energy and digestible food source.
Especially good for: Blue Tits, Bramblings, Bullfinches, Great Tits, Greenfinches, Sparrows, Nuthatch, Buntings, Siskin, Song Thrushes, Starlings
Johnston & Jeff: Robin and Songbird Mix (1kg bag)
