Pheasant & Finch
This has been created to benefit both game and wild birds, and is an excellent alternative to maize cover. Complies with ELS and HLS requirements. Can be specially mixed with wildflowers to attract butterflies, bees and insects.
Lasts up to two years. Gives cover for pheasants and partridge into January, and feed from September to December. Small wild birds will reap the benefits too.
