wild bird mix of plants for field.
We met up with someone who is trialing a wild bird mix for fields. It consists of a winter crop which includes quinoa and other grasses that attract birds to feed on them.
At present our field is all grass and weeds, nothing that particularly attracts birds although there are probably many insects, and butterfly lava hibernating in the field and plenty of rodents too judging by what the cat catches.
Has anyone got any experience of this type of field crop. The other suggestion was to sow wild flower seed but apparently this is more labour intensive and has to be repeated annually, although I know that biennials or perennial seed is probably less intensive after the first year.
