Small birds get fair share of the grub at last!

I wasn't certain it was worth spending the amount required to buy this sanctuary. However, now it's in use in our garden I think it's worth every penny. We have the usual pigeons and crows. I don't mind them as such - I feed them as well - but they do eat a lot more than the smaller birds, and much faster. So if it's free for all how do the little ones get a look in?

We now have the sanctuary sitting on a small patio under our crab apple tree, protecting a pile of seed I've put out. I love watching the smaller birds hop in and out at will, whilst the pigeons and crows look on.

SUPERB! By Lesley, on 26 Sep 2017

We no longer feed the squirrels

Absolutely squirrel proof. They try hard but four months on they haven't succeeded. Sadly the blackbirds can't make use of it. We hang the suet balls in there which the little birds now get to eat. They used to be eaten by starlings and crows. By Apple , on 29 Apr 2017

Brilliant at keeping the starlings away

This product has already paid for itself within two weeks by simply preventing the starlings from stealing all the treats I'd left for the robins and blue-tits that abound in my area.

I was so frustrated as I felt the little ones were penalised because the bigger birds were too greedy. I do not have a garden as I live on the first floor of a block, however, I already had a feeding station from RSPB so I tried to hook this protective cage on top and it worked a treat. The only draw back is that I had to seal the bottom to ensure the starlings didn't find a way to sneak in. I used the cardboard board that the cage came in to cut a bottom part out.

So far, so good... My little birds took to it instantly and they now have plenty to eat when I'm abroad. The big ones never managed to break in and as a result no longer bother to come on my balcony and make a big mess.

I whole heartily recommend this product to anyone who has a similar problem with herds of starlings.

If you can apply some plastic film on top of the cardboard bottom it will last longer as the rain may make it soggy and it may fall off eventually. In the meantime, it works wonders! By Sylvie, on 7 May 2016

Product information
Protect smaller birds from predators in this safe haven.
This sanctuary allows you to adjust the mesh width on the sides to decide who's allowed in: just small birds or small and medium birds but not larger birds (such as pigeons) and most adult squirrels.
The pitched roof allows for a coconut shell treat or small feeder (neither included) to be hung above ground feeding table (such as R0737, not included).
Opens easily for cleaning and refilling. Light enough to simply lift off to refill or reposition. Made from powder-coated steel and supplied with pegs to secure to the ground.

Ideal for feeding smaller garden birds, such as:

- Blue tit - Chaffinch - Dunnock - Great tit
- Greenfinch - House sparrow - Long-tailed tit - Robin
- Wren
Advice
Place out in the open, away from shrubs where predators could ambush birds.

If you have hedgehogs in your garden please consider removing the ground protector at night, or lifting it off the ground at one edge. It's very unlikely, but possible that they may try to get inside and get stuck.
