Non recyclable packaging

Why wrap 6 balls in plastic with a polystyrene. One of the least recyclable products on the market. What's wrong with your usual paper bag.

RSPB response: Thank you for your interest in our packaging. As a conservation charity we understand the importance of reducing our impact on the planet and take this very seriously. At the moment we cannot use paper for certain pack sizes, therefore we needed to use a laminate pack that keeps the food fresh, dry and when unopened safe from pests. We have looked into other packaging options but they are unsuitable. For instance biodegradable packaging may start to degrade before the end of the product shelf life meaning we would have high wastage. The other widely recyclable packaging used other processes that were harmful to the planet and conservation such as deforestation. We are still researching how we can make our packaging more environmentally friendly. By Malcolm, on 10 Jul 2017

The best fastballs on the market

The RSPB fat balls are now the only ones I buy. They are a little more expensive but I have wasted money on cheap fat balls which either stink or are like concrete in cold weather. These are a huge favourite with all birds - robins, siskins, blackbirds, tits etc. I use the larger box shaped fat ball feeder and the soft bilked birds that don't readily 'dangle' can perch on top and easily feed! Highly recommended after much trial and many errors... By dorothy, on 13 May 2017

Birds just don't like them!

I'm really disappointed, as in the past I've bought cheaper fat balls, some of which the birds loved, some they didn't touch. I was certain that the birds would love these RSPB fat balls, but they've barely been touched. I've tried breaking them up, but that hasn't done any good. I'm very surprised.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, sorry to hear that the suet balls didn't meet expectations. We make sure our suet ball recipes are the best quality for the birds and they are tested to ensure they are also enjoyed by a variety of bird species. It is indeed very surprising that your birds haven't enjoyed these, it can take birds a while to go to new food so that may be the problem. By Patty M, on 21 Sep 2016

Suet balls

SKU# M1116

from £1.79

Product information

RSPB suet balls are made with our own unique recipe using premium grade suet, sunflower seeds and cereals. Ideal for feeding from a suet ball feeder or loose, whole or crumbled, on bird tables and ground feeding tables.

Most garden birds will eat many different foods. Here's a quick guide to the birds that particularly enjoy this food, though other species may also enjoy it too:

- Blackbird - Blackcap - Blue tit - Great tit
- House sparrow - Long-tailed tit - Robin - Starling
Advice
Our suet products are specially formulated to make them suitable for year-round feeding. However, if positioned in direct sunlight they may soften or melt in very hot weather. If this is happening, try placing them in a shaded spot instead, or waiting until the weather is cooler.

There are no nets on our suet balls - or any other feed we make - we don't use them because birds and other wildlife can get trapped in them.
