The birds in my garden are getting through 2 feeders full of seed a day at the moment (as well as other 'treats') but at least half of the seed is being tossed out onto the ground - mainly by the sparrows. I recently started buying wheat-free seed because I was told there was less waste but that doesn't seem to be the case. Any recommendations?

Hi Whirleyshirls, I feed a premium bird seed, which has suet pieces, sunflower hearts and other mixed seeds, it all goes. They also get Niger seed, fat balls (mixed), peanuts ,sunflower hearts and it all disappears!
