Product description

This narrow mesh folding cage guardian is designed to protect ground-feeding birds from predators, creating a safe haven for them to feed.

The narrow mesh will exclude larger garden birds and most adult squirrels. To encourage a wider range of birds to feed, you could opt for the wider mesh option instead.

The latest design of this guardian cage sanctuary has a wider base, to put more distance between your food and large birds like pigeons and doves. This makes this sanctuary even more effective at creating a safe area for small birds to feed in and excluding large birds from your RSPB ground table (sold separately).

Made from powder-coated steel, the guardian comes with pegs to secure it to the ground and there's room inside for an RSPB ground feeding table (not included). The top opens easily for cleaning and refilling.

This ground protector guardian has narrow mesh openings (4 x 6 cm gaps) which will deter larger garden birds, such as blackbirds, thrushes, doves and pigeons and most adult squirrels. Small and juvenile squirrels and starlings may still be able to access the bird food.

If you wish to prevent all but small garden birds from accessing your bird food, our adjustable ground sanctuary is a great choice, as you can set the mesh size to suit. If you have hedgehogs in your garden please consider removing the ground protector at night, or lifting it off the ground at one edge. It's very unlikely, but possible that they may try to get inside and get stuck.

  • Base measures: Width 58cm x Depth 58cm x Height 35cm.
  • Narrow mesh openings (4cm x 6cm gaps).
  • Made from powder-coated steel.
  • Includes pegs to fix it securely to the ground.
  • Ideal for keeping squirrels and larger birds like pigeons and doves away from ground feeding tables.

Mixed Results - Disappointed Overall
We bought this to provide a safe eating haven for small birds away from the Corvids and the Starlings, who we provide food for separately. It took a couple of days for any bird to venture in, visitors then included Robins, Dunnocks, Coal Tit, Blue Tits, Great Tits and House Sparrows (scarce in our region). Excellent start and just what we wanted to achieve. Then it all changed.

After a few days the gang of 25+ Starlings that visit our garden every day realised they could get in. The juveniles worked it out first, then the smaller adults followed. Now they dominate it whenever food is in there, at the expense of the species it is intended for. Now the only birds using it are the Starlings and House Sparrows, who don't seem bothered by the Starlings.

Disappointed overall and I can't recommend this if you are looking for a guardian that only allows smaller birds in.

RSPB response

Starlings are on the UK Red List for Birds of Conservation Concern and do need support.However if you have a large population you wish to deter, a Squirrel Buster might be the solution as it should close if multiple starlings were feeding at the same time.

Not convinced
It definitely stops pigeons getting the food but they still hang around, although in fewer quantities. Unfortunately it does mean that other bigger birds like collared doves, jays, woodpeckers, parakeets etc. can’t get any food either, which is sad. Thankfully starlings can get in, but so too can squirrels, so I’m not convinced.
