Other products and services from CJ Wildlife


CJ WildBird Foods - Bird Food

Our research has shown that many other bird foods available are not sufficiently high in energy, oils or protein and are a poor substitute to the birds' natural food supply. These high calorie foods provide the birds with the energy they need in order to survive and have proved popular with more than 80 different species. Our foods have been specially formulated to provide a wide range of species with a safe, highly nutritious diet.


CJ WildBird Foods - Bird Feeders

When using these feeders, our experience has shown that birds appear to be more relaxed when feeding and can access food more quickly, leaving the perching ring free for another bird much sooner - a real bonus when there are lots of hungry birds waiting their turn.


CJ WildBird Foods - Nest Boxes

Our wooden range of nest boxes meets both the requirements of the birds in terms of optimum dimensions, and also in meeting the important FSC. As the nesting time of birds varies from species to species we suggest you wait until October when the last of the birds will have left. Robin, Wren, Spotted Flycatcher, Pied Wagtail, Song Thrush and Grey Wagtail, Blackbird.
