SituationI got one of these last year and the birds love it! They take it alot to their nests to soften them up but it is sheep wool. When I heard that they get tangled up in it was deciding whether to keep it or not. But last year they took it to a nest box that had a camera in it and we watched them and they were fine and we watched practically all of the time and still nothing happened, but you could cut it up i guess....
The only problem is that it runs out and you cannot fill it up again easily.
RSPB response - Thanks for your review. We sell packs of nesting wool to refill your apple wool pot! By Minimushroom, on 30 Mar 2013
Lovely little pot.I love my little wool pot & the birds do too. However I was a little concerned about the reviews, on sheeps wool being dangerous for fledglings, & how they can get tangled in the long strands, which I can well believe. So I have cut my wool into short pieces, ( about the length of cat or dog hair) then hopefully it will be much safer for the birds.
RSPB response - Sheep wool is a natural fibre, which is found all over the countryside and regularly used by birds to line their nests. It makes for a warm and cosy nest, which early nesters will certainly need this year! By Jane, on 13 Mar 2013
I love Terracotta butThis is a lovely little wool pot but unfortunately did not survive a short fall from my tree onto the lawn. Lovely as terracotta is for durability I wish it had been made of plastic. :( By Rosalind, on 31 May 2011
