Can't see anything near double its price so it must be a deal! Maybe pick up some shades at the same time as it's bright!

Out of stock unfortunately. However, we do have a feeder similar to this and it does a good job of keeping squirrels away from the food.
Also, the snow brought a rather unusual bird into our garden. We had a Fieldfare turn up!

Great deal. Suet balls maybe better for winter. I am a newbie to this. The birds are v piercingly shrill in their calls in the morning. Have a neglected shared back garden and wondering where to start.
[Bought some! If unusable, give it to my neighbour]

Try the RSPB website - they should have some useful tips on making your garden bird friendly.

Heat for the deal.
If you put a seed feeder up make sure you purchase a no mess mix otherwise you will end up a an even more neglected back garden as the seed that the birds discard(they can be fussy) will end up germinating .
We make large suet blocks and slice once set then kept in the freezer.

Basic recipe we use

2 Suet block
1 Cups crunchy peanut butter
2 Cups Quick cooking oats
1 Cup flour
1 Cup Niger seed
1 Cup Sunflower seeds

Extra oats or seeds to compact

Suet blocks won't work well in this feeder
Sunflower hearts are great in this weather, no mess and really good for birds.
Oh no I missed this deal. I have just moved into a new home and bought a few bird feeders and a stand, they are still going to next door though and not using mine 😞

Showing 3 left in stock

We buy from Wilko sunflower seeds , Niger seeds , peanuts and mealworms ! Takes them awhile to trust / find at first but don't give up
You will need to hit this feeder every so often to knock the food down otherwise it sticks & goes mouldy!
I used to love feeding the birds with one of these and also fat balls. Unfortunately the food which dropped to the ground below attracted rats. Does anyone have suggestions on how to prevent the 'leftovers' dropping to the ground? I'd love to see them return to my garden.... the birds I mean.

Try fixing a plastic plant saucer (6 or 8 inches maybe)to the bottom of the feeder. Use a hot glue gun or maybe cable ties.

Thanks Simon. I don't have a glue gun but the cable ties are a great idea. I'll give it a go. I love the birds being around.

One winter was sitting at a wooden picnic table with my cornish pasty in Chelsea, felt a settling nr a modest place under table, v gently leaned back and there was this red breasted robin sitting there looking up at me eye to eye. I calmed myself from thinking please dont peck and he continued to stay put for an extraordinary length of time. His feathers werent so good. I surrenderred my cornish pasty and he helped himself before me on the picnic table.
