Bird Feeding Encouraged By Bonnington Plastics Due To Declining Numbers
Though many birds last through winter via migration, the UK bird population has taken a dangerous hit after extreme weather shortened food supplies even further.
Nottingham (I-Newswire) January 14, 2013 - The Met Office reported 2012 to be the second wettest year the UK has ever experienced, and the wettest to ever occur in England. Some areas found themselves suffering the wettest summers in a century, resulting in the flooding that occurred nationwide.
The damp weather affected the breeding patters of many UK birds this summer, in particular the Swift. Torrential rainfall led to a reduction in the number of aerial insects, which making up the main source of nutrition for the Swift. Many saw the birds abandoning their young less than a week after they hatched, lacking the food to sustain them. This is generally unheard of, with birds being naturally maternal creatures.
Bonnington Plastics, wholesalers of gardening and animal products, are encouraging the UK public to set up food sources for garden birds this year, helping sustain the creatures through a difficult time. A representative from the company commented, “We share a passion for birds at Bonnington Plastics, and recognise they’re essential to ecosystems across the entire planet. We supply a wide variety of products to retailers for feeding birds, and feel it’s important to ensure people are both supporting and feeding birds throughout a wet and difficult winter.”
Species aside from the Swift were seen to suffer at the whim of extreme UK weather. The Blue Tit saw caterpillars, their primary food source, being washed away from trees in the rain. This species also frequents domestic feeders, though more are needed to counteract the damage done to their breeding cycle.
Bonnington Plastics are wholesalers of garden and animal care products, ranging from suet to shovels. They have been providing retailers across the UK with their stock since 1967, and hope to see consumers making good use of their products to aid the bird population this winter.
