Bird seed is available to purchase in the Field Centre in handy 1kg bags. However, if you would like to save money and buy a sack of seed then please ask a member of staff as there are several in stock. The sacks vary in weight and price and are all at a reduced rate. For example, a 15kg sack of Black Sunflower Seeds costs only £14.00. Payments can be taken over the phone and if you live locally we may be able to deliver free of charge. See the full price list of feed on our website.

As well as bags of seed, we stock Flutter Butter feed too, such as the Easy Peasy bird food with a pop up hanger included!

Chunky dumplings (handmade luxury fatballs) and basket feeders are a hit with most garden birds too.

To help identify flora and fauna there is a large choice of Field Studies guides.  These quick reference guides enable you to quickly identify all different kinds of wildlife. From the birds, butterflies and bees to bats and the trees. The laminated guides are weather proof and can easily be wiped clean. They are great fun for use in groups, in the classroom or on a family day out. They are only around £3 each (reduced from the RRP).

For more detail on a subject, there is a range of Natural History books for all ages. These are all selling for less than the RRP too.

We sock a selection of Robert Fuller greeting cards all for only £2 each.

Plus John Webster cards and notelets than can be bought as single cards or in packs of 4 notelets.

Finally, our best seller; in stock but selling fast are jars of delicious Foxglove honey at only £5 per jar!

If you see something that you would like to buy but can't get out then give us a call on 01748 830045 and we will do our best to help!
