What to do about the string?

I have to agree with other reviewers - the birds love these coconuts, but the string can fail. The first time it happened, the shell disappeared, so we assumed the squirrel had got through our defences. However, it has happened twice since, and we found the shells. I am a bit mystified because this only happened with the last 3 in the box. Two points, though. 1 Where we found the shell, still with some content, we laid it flat on a feeding tray, and the birds were happy to clean it out. 2 We've just ordered another box, and I will see if I can thread some wire through the holes to provide extra strength.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, I apologise for the issues you have had with the string. Moving forward the string used should be stronger and longer, and not come loose. We will monitor the situation closely to ensure we do not continue to have the string issues, and resolve any if there are. By Ken, on 12 Dec 2017

Those strings again...

Yes, the birds here love their coconut treats and queue up to peck. It is the short and feeble strings that are still the problem.

It feels good to use up the coconut shells. The ones can go into my green recycling bin too.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, I am glad your birds enjoy our coconut treats! We are aware of the issue with the strings and are currently working with our supplier to resolve this. By Valerie, on 17 Jun 2017

Disappointed that string issues not resolved

As I had previously reported problems with the strings on these, I had hoped that the batch I bought most recently would be better. However, each day after hanging the first few, I found the coconut shells on the ground with the string loose. I thought it might have been enthusiastic feeding by the jackdaws and woodpecker but when I tried the string on the next FOUR before I hung them, the strings pulled through with little effort. I now push a stiff plastic tie through the hole before hanging. The birds love these but I haver bought another brand and didn't have the same issue with the strings.

RSPB response - Thank you for your comment. We are sorry to hear of this issue. We have fed this back to our manufacturer so improvements can be made.

Product information

Delight the birds with our Coconut shell treats with added mealworms for extra flavour and nutrition.

Who gets more pleasure out of these, the blue tits, long-tailed tits and other beautiful species who devour them - or you watching them clinging to a suspended coconut shell, contentedly pecking at its contents?

Each easy-to-hang shell is packed with a nutritious blend of our premium suet, seeds and cereals, plus mealworms and weighs around 275 g.

Individually wrapped and supplied in a recyclable cardboard box. Filled in the UK.

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:

- Blackcap - Blue tit - Coal tit - Great tit
- Long-tailed tit - 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.
