Waitrose Garden High Energy Fat Cake 500ml

Product information

With our passion for quality and our love of wildlife we have developed an exclusive range of bird food to attract a variety of species to your garden. High energy fat cakes are a versatile way to attract many species such as Robin, Blackbird, Blue Tit, Chaffinch and Greenfinch. We've added mealworms to increase protein levels. Feed daily from a feeder, hang with wire or string or chop up and place on a table or the ground. Fat cakes can also be rubbed onto tree bark to attract species like Nuthatch and Treecreeper. Remove packaging before use (simply tear the perforated strip and remove). Fat cakes provide birds with a high energy treat - essential for survival during cold weather. Remove any debris from feeding areas and clean feeding equipment regularly with wildlife friendly detergent to avoid bacterial build up.

be prepared for flocks of birds

Birds love these, especially blue tits, robins, starlings, sparrows and green finches. We put out lots of different food and this is their absolute favourite. We have a smallish city centre garden and we can get through three of these a week during fledgling season.

Very popular with the birds in our garden

Only lasts a few days with our birds as its so popular, with the birds queuing for their peck. Love to watch some of the blackbirds and a robin that cant work out how to balance on, so sits on the ground, then jumps up, sometimes getting high enough for a pecking but other times landing back on the ground. Tip - if you have a lot of crows, magpies and jackdaws who are very greedy try to hang it on a tree amongst branches, makes it more difficult to get at as they keep flapping their wings. Only negative is that the consistency is a bit soft.

never fails

As a bird lover, I try lots of different types of food for wild birds, and I love starlings. They love this product and will wait on the branches for me to deliver the new batch.

Looks Great, Texture Poor

Our garden birds are spoilt rotten. I've tried many brands of lard cakes like this and, whilst it looked great coming out the pack, two things I did not like. 1. No hook included in the pack, unlike others; so assumes you have a hook to fit this to or else dig out string or other fixing yourself & 2. block started to disintegrate, the minute I got it out the pack - day was quite cool and yet lard started to fall apart. Not impressed
