I’m sure the box will be recycled for use by one of the children when it’s empty.
We first tried it in our new big feeder, which is the most popular one in the garden, although there was not much interest in it to begin with so we left it in their for a few days and slowly seen a bit more interest in it. The sparrows and Chaffinch seemed to enjoy this the most and seemed more popular after a few days.
We also scattered some of the seeds on the ground for them too and there seemed to be more interest that way
This came as a 7.5kg container and is available to purchase from the website here
