Countrydweller, If you compare the prices at croston mill to vivara, I think you will find things like sunflower hearts at about 1 third of the price at croston.

Although the village of Croston was flooded, the Corn Mill stayed dry - check out their facebook page here

You are right , at this time of the year it is really important to ensure the birds have food daily. They become used to being fed in your garden and if it is not there, they use up more energy trying to find wild food, when they havent been used to doing this. You are also correct that sometimes you can get good buys on special offer in the shops locally, but the range of food and bulk buy is the reason I prefer to buy from Croston Mill, I dont have to wait for special offers it is always a very good price and just as importantly very good quality foods.

My husband buys the bird feed at espace vert and ensures to make a special trip when the food is low.  Our birds are all fat and happy.  I read on the internet that birds do not understand it when there is no food where they usually get it. 

We also throw some cat dry food out, the magpies love it.  
Fat birds don't fly.
