It's a bit of metal with dishes for bird food and water. Good reviews. Original price allegedly £19.49. Free delivery over £50 so I'm getting this with other stuff.

Dining station for birds

So birds can go to the restaurant but McDonalds are closed for us lot
Heat for the description. No flowery bs. It's a piece of metal.

It's just over 2 meters tall and 60cm wide with dishes. If anyone is interested.

Is it too short, once in the ground deep enough to be stable?

Yup McCrap is closed!
It’s fairly stable in the ground. But the additional hook and 2x bowls dont stay on the pole very well

Reviews don't show up for me on the Robert Dyas site, I tried 3 different browsers but I can't see any.

This has good reviews on amazon.

Use a parasol base


I think a parasol base might look a bit tacky in the garden.

You get these 4 pronged stabilizers for bird feeders, like the one linked below, but I'm not sure that one is the right size for this bird feeder.

I've had this for a while. It's pretty stable, everything stays as is (no extra hooks in the ground). But I might've got lucky since the ground was wet when I installed it. All my garden attracts is fat boy pigeons and crows and they seem to perch on the bowls as they eat just fine. It survived that crazy windy weather we had too. All in all, decent.

Our's isn't in a garden it's in the rear yard,but each to their own
Got this one from Wilkos few weeks back which is £10 Holding up well so far and pretty sturdy even with several pigeons and doves fighting on it. Keeps me entertained when working from home.

Not sure on delivery cost for this alone, i think I paid £5 delivery but had quite a few other garden bits delivered at the same time.

Any good at keeping squirrels off?
I love watching the birds on a hot summers day
A very similar item is on sale at The Range for £7.99
therange.co.uk/gar…on/

I have one (from The Range) and it's as good as the last one I had which lasted about 5 years before rusting out,
The spike at the base is useful to stop it from rotating in the wind.
I glued the joints together for extra strength and rigidity.

Looking at a great spotted woodpecker on my feeder as I type.
Can anyone recommend feeders to hang on the station?

I'm thinking about getting the Jacobi Jayne Ring Pull Pro, they seem quite well reviewed and built to last.

I've something similar, but as mentioned above I picked it up for £7.99 from Poundstretcher. B&M had it also.

I've mounted mine to a decking support post using a couple of curtain rail holders.
Rubbish - Couple of years and the one I had was rusty; happy to give a lick of paint, but it was so thin, I just chucked it and spent a fair bit more on something substancial. OK, it is cheap - you can't expect to much and I know that it may be within a budget for some (fair enough), but long term this is false economy IMO

If it was made of aluminium, it might have been OK - didn't last more than a few years before various bits started falling off due to rust....
Bring your own cutlery?
Heat! My bird loves a bit of al fresco.

I have one of these (a niger seed feeder) and it's very good. Two of the perches snapped off mine during a storm a few months ago and I was sent replacements free of charge (maybe I paid for postage).

Cheapest comparible one I can see on the range is 19.99 and then 3.95 delivery.

I could do the round trip in 6 hours to my nearest range, if I left the car running while i ran in to buy just that 1 item. Not feeling up for the trip really.

That's one thing I like about the Jacobi Jayne Ring Pull Pro, they have a lifetime guarantee so will replace parts like what happened with you.

I've ordered two seed ones so will see what it's like when I get it. Also ordered a suet fat ball feeder of a different make.

Funny thing is I spent £9.69 on this stand, but around another £70 on different feeders and bird food etc. But I went for well reviewed feeders that will last, although you can get much cheaper ones obviously.
