Many of our supporters have requested a 'Wishlist' of items that they can purchase in order to support the charity in carrying out its vital work. So, we have put together a list of items we are currently in need of, to aid us in helping the many sick, injured and orphaned animals and birds currently in our care at our wildlife rescue centre.
Food Items for our insect-eating baby birds
Due to the warmer winters, weirdly, we are starting to see baby birds coming into the centre. Normally, we would expect to see them starting to arrive around late March/early April. NOT February!
So far, we have admitted one juvenile robin and one juvenile blackbird.
However, we have received calls about other nestling songbirds and people worrying that it's too early in the season.
We feed our juvenile songbirds on a rearing mix we make up here at our centre. However, when their pin feathers start to come through, we start to wean them off the formula by feeding insects every alternate feed. The insects provide vital vitamins and also teach the youngsters how to forage for food for themselves.
We (and our baby birds) would be extremely grateful for a tub or two of waxworms or any of the other food items listed below:
