Squirrels love it

Yes it hold the suet balls but the squirrels have no problems getting at them and while the squirrels feast the small birds do not and further more the squirrels are exceedingly greedy.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, I am sorry you are unhappy with this product. Whilst we do not advertise our products to be squirrel proof, we are currently looking into our guardians to see if there are improvements we can make to further deter them. By Mucka, on 21 Jun 2017

No sweat for squirrels

Needs a wider guardian or smaller feeder. Adult squirrels just reach in and grab handfuls of suet. Looks nice, though. Might try replacing the feeder with a single-column one, if I can find one with screw thread on bottom.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review. We are aware of the number of reviews highlighting issues with this product and will be looking at changes we can make. I apologise that it was not effective for you. If you need any further assistance please contact our customer service team.

Jackdaws empty it in hours

Bought one of these because the smaller birds like the suet and it was being eaten in minutes by the starlings and jackdaws. Well, the suet balls are still being eaten in minutes. In fact, it has made it easier for the jackdaws, who now have a nice cage to hang on to so that they can take large chinks out of the suet and throw it in the floor for their friends. I wish I had read the other reviews properly before buying. Come on RSPB, please don't sell us stuff that doesn't work!

RSPB response: Thank you for your review. Jackdaws are highly intelligent birds that can pick up tricks easily, so it is difficult to ever exclude them entirely. Starlings are a red-listed species so we do not design feeders to restrict them specifically. We are wary of making the gaps in the product too small and restricting smaller birds from entry, however we will take your comments on board when discussing this product with our supplier.

Product information

Fill this suet feeder guardian with up to 10 of our suet balls or a hanging bird cake, hang it up and rest assured that the small birds will get the best deal. We've designed our suet guardian to provide excellent protection, both top and bottom, for little birds while feeding.

  • - Measures 30 cm tall & 24 cm diameter
Don't forget to clean feeders regularly! We've designed them for easy-cleaning.

Squirrels are clever and determined creatures. To reduce the risk of them reaching and attacking 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.

Please note that when young and juvenile squirrels are around in late summer, they may be able to squeeze through the gaps.
