Just too loud!

My parents bought us this clock for Christmas in the hope that it would provide years of entertainment for their grandson, just as their earlier model provided years of entertainment for my brother and I whilst growing up. My husband was a bit dubious, but I was keen and loved that we could match many of the birds to those we see in the garden. We managed to match up the bird songs to the correct hour (follow the set up instructions carefully rather than just sticking batteries in and setting the time as you might for any other clock). However, the bird songs are SO LOUD that they made us jump every time they sounded, and it is actually quite uncomfortable being in the same room as the clock on the hour. There doesn't appear to be any way of adjusting the volume. Plus the mechanical movement is really loud so, unless you are a fan of a loud ticking clock, this is not one for you. My baby son did have fun playing with the cardboard box it came in, but that is now destroyed. So, I can't return the clock and it will have to go to the charity shop for someone with a much bigger house or much less sensitive hearing than we have. By sg123, on 29 Apr 2017

Very disapointing

My daughter bought this at my request as a replacement for my 20yr old bird song clock, we expected it to be of similar quality. The first disappointment was that the hands were silver , not brown as shown, this meant that it was impossible to see the hands most of the day, because of reflected light. 2 son-in laws tried to set it up. however the clock did not keep time and it was erratic, sometimes gaining very quickly, other times more slowly. The bird songs were similarly erratic often not matching the bird shown for the time. My daughter is returning the clock under guarantee, I do not want a replacement, I would sooner use my old clock even though the bird sounds have now worn out. I would sooner be without them than hear the poorly recorded sounds on the new clock.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, I am sorry that you were unhappy with the product. Photos two and three of the product show the hands of the clock to be silver, so I believe it is the lighting in photo one that makes the hands appear brown. The bird sounds should match the pictures, it sounds like the clock wasn't set up properly. We have posted instructions on the product page which should ensure the clock is set up correctly.
