Highly nutritious and bursting with energy, suet delivers crucial meals for the wild birds which visit your garden. Most species will enjoy tucking in to the suet which is particularly beneficial in the winter months when food sources can be in short supply. However, suet can be fed throughout the year and provides important energy for migrating birds who need to build up their reserves before embarking on their arduous journeys.

What is Suet?
Suet is an animal by-product and is simply rendered fat, typically kidney fat from sheep and cattle. This is then shaped into balls, pellets, cakes and sticks to provide convenient methods for feeding the birds which are easy to handle. The suet may also contain seeds, fruit, mealworms or insects to provide maximum nutrition. You will discover a variety of recipes and so you will be able to invest in suet to attract the species that you would most like to see in your garden.
So, which birds can you expect to see enjoying your suet?
Most garden birds will be happy to tuck into your avian suet treats. If you are interested in seeing blue tits, great tits, coal tits and long-tailed tits choose suet which features mealworms. Suet with fruit is very popular popular with robins and blackbirds. Suet packed with insects will attract robins, finches and tits.
Suet and Feeders
Suet pellets can be placed in a suet pellet feeder or simply sprinkled onto your bird table. There’s no need to invest in a feeder with our suet cakes which include hangers and our suet logs can also be placed on your bird table or fed from specially designed log feeders. Alternatively, try our Suet to Go trays which can simply be placed on your table for the birds to feast on.
Issues with Suet for Wild Birds
It is important to remove any uneaten suet from your bird table and feeders before it turns rancid. Suet is a natural, perishable product. Most of the suet that you put out for the birds will be gobbled up quickly, but if there’s any left over, particularly in warmer weather, remove it and clean your feeders before offering more suet to the birds.
