RSPB > Bird food

    Just about every garden bird loves to feast on these high-energy nibbles. Made from juicy raisins blended with top quality UK-made suet and cereal. Use all year-round.

    This medium size pouch of fruity nibbles are a great alternative to peanuts. They can be fed from a wire mesh nut and nibble feeder year-round. As they don't have the choking hazards of whole peanuts, they are also suitable for feeding loose from tables.

    Most garden birds will eat many different foods. Here's a quick guide to the birds that particularly enjoy this food, though other species may also enjoy it too:

    Great quality food
    These disappear quicker than cheaper pellets. For starlings I will try mixing them with the cheaper ones as otherwise it's just too expensive.

    House Sparrows are multiplying
    My garden has had problems due to predators but this year a family of House Sparrows started visiting. I put out your nibbles and they have multiplied from the family of six to last count of seventeen. I am hoping it will encourage a wider range of birds to stop and take a look. These nibbles go very quickly.

    Excellent product, popular with the ibirds in my garden.
    I have been offering my feathered customers (a) birdseed, (b) sunflower hearts (c) fruity nibbles. The fruity nibbles are the most popular and the feeder requires replenishment on a frequent basis.

    Query
    Why do you not sell these in bulk(box) quantities likely your other sprinkles and nibbles. It's a nuisance - and more expensive! - having to to order in multiples of smaller quantities.

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review, we are pleased to hear the fruity nibbles are going well. We will pass on your comments to our product team about being able to buy in bulk.

    I can hardly fill it fast enough!
    Fruity nibbles are the most popular food in my garden aside from sunflower seeds. They attract house sparrows, starlings, tits, and blackcap warblers, and I find that I'm always refilling the feeder! Definitely an excellent product.

    RSPB response: Hi Rebecca, thank you for the review it is great to hear that the birds are enjoying the fruity nibbles.

    Almost too good
    After great success with buggy nibbles, we decided to add some variation and try these. Straight from the feeder they've been very popular with sparrows, blue tits and lately young starlings, while blackbirds and woodpigeons happily mop up what's spilled on the ground.
    Fruity nibbles have in fact proved so popular, the option to purchase a bumper box size would be very welcome.

    They're tasty, very, very tasy!
    I am very impressed by how much the birds love these nibbles. I only intended to put out till late spring, but as the birds are still eating, intend to keep buying. As soon as I fill up, sparrows, blue tits and starlings are on the feeder and are emptying it each day. Quite amusing to see the sparrows watching the agile blue tit pull the bits from bottom of the feeder, and as nibbles drop to ground, the sparrows dive & grab. Disgruntled blue tit left on feeder :)

    Excellent for all garden birds
    Starlings and Jays adore these and blue tits and robin if they can get a look in! Plus the occasional magpie.

    I put the nibbles in a hanging tray type feeder with lid. Keeping lid low to avoid pigeons getting in.

    Great
    Easy to use. Scoop out of resealable bag into feeder. I use a dome Droll Yankees feeder (RSPB shop), with these so they do not get wet from rain. Attracts Robins; Coal, Blue, Great, Long Tailed Tits; Finches, and the odd Starling.

    Woodpeckers love them
    I mixed these with the buggy nibbles and put them in a mesh peanut feeder and also a ground feeder.

    All the birds love them but in the spring I had a pair of Greater Spotted Woodpeckers visiting regularly. Last week I felt very privileged to see the whole family- Mum, Dad and 2 babies. I watched them for ages! Now the babies come all the time - it's so lovely to see them. I felt kind of warm inside as I realised that I had a hand in helping to rear these beautiful birds.

    I feel that these nibbles are a far superior product to others on the market. They might not be the cheapest but they are the best, as they actually have real fruit in them.

    Instant hit with the birds
    Thought I'd try these out in our redundant mesh feeder as no birds were showing interest in the peanuts we used to fill it with. Now the feeder is constantly busy and far more popular than our two no-mess sunflower seed mix filled feeders. Seem to be a big hit amongst most birds including Black cap, Nut hatch, Long tailed tit, Greater spotted woodpecker and Parakeet... Plenty of birdlife here in West London! Only negative thing is that they are more susceptible to the rain so can get spoilt more easily than peanuts and seed based food.

    Just standard
    I've bought a few packs of these. They get eaten fine but nothing special. I buy them because I like to give my birds a bit of variety every week but theres just no excitement in these like there is when I put out Peck n Mix and so I only really use these when I'm a bit low on the favourites.

    New Visitors
    Tried these for the first time recently. They are a hit with great tits, coal tits, blue tits and starlings. Today was surprised to see nuthatches feeding on them. We have never seen these in the garden before but they have been on the feeder throughout the day. Hopefully these will become regular visitors.

    Hours of entertainment value!!
    We mix the buggy and fruity nibbles together and put them in a large peanut feeder. At the moment (May) we are having to refill the feeder every two to three days - they are so popular. It is wonderful to watch the young blue tits, great tits and starlings trying to get at the nibbles whilst keeping their balance - it gives us hours of entertainment. A larger pack at a greater discount would be helpful, however.

    Best restaurant around!
    We have started filling our feeders with a mix of fruity nibbles, buggy nibbles, nyger seed and no-mess seed mix, and the result is instant fame with the local birds and a reputation as the best restaurant in the area. The best bit so far is the regular sight of two lovely pairs of previously unseen bullfinches - gorgeous!

    Birds loved it!
    I put this in my mesh peanut feeder with buggy nibbles. Although the birds loved these, they preferred the buggy nibbles. Given the choice, they ignore peanuts completely in preference to these. I've decided to stop feeding peanuts & to feed a combo of these & the buggy nibbles. They go down well on the bird table as well. But when I sprinkled some on the lawn a neighbours cat ate them before the birds could get to them(!)

    Starling Paradise
    We certainly have a lot of young starlings at the moment and they enjoy this. It leaves the other squirrel proof feeders available for the other birds to enjoy the other food which I get from the RSPB website. These include the sunflower seeds, suet cake, nyer seed (Goldfinches speciality) and table mix. Most of the birds we have are of the finch family but are hounded by pidgeons and the squirrel family though the latter don't like the squirrel proof feeders!

    Astonishingly popular!
    I've just bought my first refills for the reuseable tubs. The birds love these nibbles which I put in a mesh feeder mixed and shaken up in equal parts with the buggy nibbles. A portion of them I scatter on the ground for the blackbirds, thrushes, dunnocks, robins, magpies, collared doves and wood pigeons. All the birds seem to love them. We now have - and I can hear them whilst typing - a large number of starling parents and fledglings at the feeders almost constantly. Pre-fledging the many parents were back and forth to their nests with beakfuls of the nibbles like a production line. Fantastic! I can't recommend these highly enough.

    Fruity nibbles for small birds
    Since I put up a bird feeder with these fruity nibbles, I have had a group of great tits visiting the garden every morning and during the early afternoon. They seem to like them more than other types of bird food around in the garden. I spotted a pair of robins feasting on these two! Really good for attacting smaller birds.

    Update.
    A day after my last review the small group of starlings that have started visiting since I started hanging fat cakes out have discovered these nibbles in the feeder. They've learned to cling to it - upside down like blue tits as the level of the food gets low - to feed and their mates underneath run around and hoover up the bits they drop. It's quite hilarious watching them get so excited over this food. I'll definitely be ordering more.

    The are good on the ground or in a mesh feeder. I only put out a few at a time, and mix them with nuts in a feeder with some mealworm. Easy to use no mess, and no waste.

    Put these up in a RSPB nut feeder a couple of days ago and already the coal tits are loving them. The ground feeders - the blackbirds and magpies in particular - also seem to hoover them up pretty quickly. I'll be buying more when I run out.

    Just watch these treats go!
    These are loved by the birds in our garden, especially the starlings. Within seconds of putting out a new batch there were 6 or so starlings flying in and out with these but within 5 minutes every fledgling starling within the neighbourhood must have been in our garden along with the parents. At one point we counted 28 birds. Poor blackbird looked so confused :) I'll give the treats half an hour and then I bet they'll be gone. Just wish they were easier to get hold of.

    These are incredibly popular in our garden with both blackbirds and starlings. They even favour these over the sunflower hearts. I recomended these to my mum when she first got her bird table and she had 'visitors' within an hour of the table being set up :-)

    took the birds a while, but they love them.
    I have three feeders stuck to a window in an east London block of flats. It took the birds a while to decide if they liked these pellets, but the great tits in particular love them, and there's no mess to drop onto the ground floor patio.
