A good investment

Our experience has been very different from that of the other reviewers. We don't have squirrels on Skye but maybe our small birds are brighter because they got used to it in a matter of minutes and quickly began to favour it over the unprotected feeder. Our problem has also been jackdaws and, since the guardian defeats them completely, a refill of peanuts last about four times as long, so I expect it to pay for itself in saved seed in a month or two, plus we won't have to see tits and finches driven off by these unaggressive but large and clumsy competitors. Easy to fit, easy to fill. Try it? By Bill, on 26 Feb 2013

Agree with other review

I can't comment on squirrels as they are not a problem for us - it's the jackdaws who eat everything!
As Sue says the small birds do not like it either! We have ours on a feeder pole which has been in several places in the garden over the past year. Blue tits are regular visitors to our neighbours gardens. We have very occasinally seen them on this feeder, but they never seem to stay. I am tired of throwing out mouldy peanuts and will be ordering one from another company.
I suspect that the steelpy sloping base of the guardian may have something to do with their dislike, but will let you know when I have tried an alternative. By Ann, on 9 Nov 2012

Not a good buy

This product does keep out squirrels as claimed. Unfortunately also keeps out the birds.
We have had a guard for over a year now and the bird don't venture in, so the nuts just go mouldy!

RSPB response - Thanks for your review. Sorry to hear you're not happy with this product. You could try positioning the feeder in different places around the garden to see if the birds are happier using it. The size of the gaps on a feeder guardian is always a compromise between making sure that small birds can access the food and trying to deter squirrels. This is why we never claim our products are squirrel 'proof'. By sue, on 18 Oct 2012

Advice
Squirrels are clever and determined creatures. To reduce the risk of them reaching your feeders and guardians, try to locate the feeder at least 2 metres away from any potential jumping off point such as a tree trunk, fence, post or wall, and consider using a baffle with the feeder.

Keeping your bird feeders clean will help keep your birds healthy, happy and coming back for more.
