    Not fit for purpose
    On getting this the sleeve was missing and when the wind got up it fell down. I gave up and put my feeders into the grass as they never come down that way. Need much heavier base as this one is in fact quite dangerous as it could have broken our window. No Good At All need to do better.

    RPSB response: Thank you for your review, I am sorry that you are unhappy with this product. The patio base is made from cast iron steel and has been tested to ensure it does not tip. We cannot make it any heavier otherwise customers would not be able to carry it.

    Not Heavy Enough
    received this as a present with the feeder station
    first slight bit of wind and pole was over & all the bird food & niger seeds are all over my garden. Great.
    Husband had had to drill through the stand and screw to floor to stop this happening again.
    Not fit for purpose

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review. Whilst the patio base is designed to stable the feeder station, unfortunately we have been experiencing very strong winds recently. The product is cast iron and already quite heavy, so unfortunately it is unlikely we will be able to make it heavier as people will need to move it. Please also ensure that it is on a completely flat surface to further prevent falling in strong winds.

    Part missing 2
    I had exactly the same problem as a previous reviewer, with the adaptor sleeve missing. Really annoying

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review, we very sorry that a part was missing and for any inconvenience caused. Please contact customer services who will be happy to provide a replacement.

    Blows over on windy days
    I purchased the complete bird station and base. I had been really pleased with this product until the first windy day. What a pity there isn't an even heavier base available.

    RPSB Response: Thank you for your review, we will take these comments on board. We are limited by several factors on the weight of this item, but we will look in to this further. We recommend placing this in a sheltered area wherever possible and removing on very windy days, as with bird tables and other top-heavy products.

    Very good
    The old base on our feeder bent during a storm so this was a replacement. The daisy base is much more attractive, and the pole fitting with the adaptor is brilliant - no screws requred to hold the pole in. Our feeder pole is now vertical again!

    Parts missing
    The 25mm to 23mm sleave was missing and without it the whole feeding station that I purchased would not stand up firmly or correctly. The RSPB were unable3 to supply me with a sleave and hence the whole feeding station and base had to be returned.
    Very poor service!

    RSPB Feeder station free to turn
    The bottom section of the feeding station bolts securely to the base.
    However with the sleeve in this section I find that the station as a whole is slightly wobly due to the diameter of the poles being less than the sleeve. Perhaps this is intentional so that the station can align itself with the wind ??
    I talked to customer enquiry who advise me I can return the order if I`m not happy with the product and wife has telephoned RSPB Vane Farm who say it sells well and have had no complaints They have had a feeding station for a number of years with no problem and helpfully are contacting their supplier about our enquiry . Rating hopefully on the low side -will see how the station stands up to the first strong wind.

    Not heavy enough for windy locations
    Our base arrived two weeks ago. Fitting the pole and feeder to it was straightforward, although the pole did not go all the way in, and the bottom bolt would not reach the hole in the pole as a result. It didn't seem to matter.

    In the two weeks since we put the feeder up on the base, the wind has blown it over twice. We do live in a windy location, but I had thought from the description that the base would be sturdy enough.

    I would only recommend this base for locations with low wind.

    Good design
    Very sturdy base. Stable in the wind. Fits RSPB poles, including the one with the pointed end - I have all 3 poles in and did not have to remove one as the other reviewer did. Quick and easy to set up.
