5. Flutter Butter
This is still a rather new product for us at the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust but Flutter Butter has flown off the shelves! We tend to find they last longer than your traditional fatball and are normally frequented only by the smaller garden species. Do not forget to get the feeder for them which is perfect for housing the jar but if you fancy giving one of the 3 flavours a go just click here. Rich and nutritious to a wide range of species it delivers a powerful year-round protein boost. Naturally low in salt (ordinary peanut butter harms birds) you have a choice of three flavours – original (no salt), buggy and fruity in 330g jars.
