Squirrel proof and bomb proof

We have four of these and some have now done 10 years service. They confound squirrels as long as you have them hanging far enough away from a tree trunk. Birds love them!

This feeder is far too long. The seed container part is tiny and needs refilling twice a week. It gets wet inside so the seeds stick and are unavailable to birds, despite regular cleaning. Not very easy to take apart and replace when refilling. An expensive mistake.

Sadly this didn't work

Squirrels soon learned to jump at this from the side (and became very adept at this) After that they spent so much time on this that pretty soon they had demolished the bottom of the internal part of the feeder - the bit that holds in the nuts. Huge failure :-(

Feed the birds but not the squirrels! For many years my husband and I have had great pleasure from all the birds we in the garden. It was great when we spotted a new species - out the book would come to identify what it was. But then the squirrels moved in so we stopped feeding the birds and needless to say I don't get them in the garden anymore. If you have any suggestions of getting the birds back whilst keeping the squirrels at bay I would be delighted to hear. Regards Margaret

The squirrel proof seed feeder does not make the slightest difference to our squirrels! They hang from above so their weight is not registered by the feeder, sad to say.

These weighted feeders that only allow smaller birds to feed can be good. Apparently mixing a bit of pepper with the seed puts them off but is tasteless and unharmful for birds.

Hello there, I think it would be lovely to encourage the birds back, but can understand your reluctance to have the squirrels. Therefore perhaps your best option would be a feeder that the birds can use, but the squirrels can't . We do have a couple, which are said to be almost 'squirrel proof' - just click on the following link to go straight to them. http://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.squirrel-proof/ If this works out, then perhaps you can then put up some nesting boxes and even a bird bath. I hope this helps and I will keep my fingers crossed for you. Helen Plant Doctor

How to create a wildlife-friendly garden

Wildlife-friendly gardens are not only more interesting as you can watch all the comings and goings, but they are often more productive as many creatures will help increase pollination. Garden ponds act as a magnet to dragonflies and damsel flies, along w

Feed the birds

Position the bird table in an open site where they can reach it without danger and close enough to the house so you can see the daily comings and goings. If starlings scare off the other more timid species from your table, try feeding in late
