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.

String too short
I have bought suet coconut shells from other places often and never had this problem before. Every single one of them had a very short string that you couldn't keep a knot in. I tried fastening them up with wire, it is a bit of a faff to do and lasted for a while, but i am not going to get any more of these from RSPB even though i want to support the charity.
RSPB response
Thank you for your review and your support. We are sorry to hear that you are disappointed with your purchase. We will pass your feedback on to the purchasing team.

Lacking bugs
I've bought this product for years. It's particularly popular with our bluetits at this time of year. Sadly, this year the coconuts are smaller and have very few mealworms. Not so popular!
RSPB response
It is great that birds are enjoying the treats. As they are a natural product the size of the shells can vary depending on the harvest. The mealworms are powdered to make them easier to consume, which affects visibility. The composition has not changed.

Too easy for squirrels
I hadn't bought these before. I hung on a hook on my bird station and minutes later blue tits, great tits and long tailed tits came. However I have marauding grey squirrels who try to wreck the feeders, unsuccessfully. A week later, the coconut shell had disappeared so I put out another one and saw the squirrel just run off with it in its claw. Luckily it dropped it so retrieved it but the jute hook had gone. I need to find a squirrel proof container for the shells otherwise they'll nick the lot. A shame!

half coconut suet feeders
I endorse other comments about the string holder. I was given 5 for a present. Squirrel has eaten through string and 'gone off' with the whole coconut.
I rehung one with wire, but second criticism is can I refill / how do I refill the coconut?
RSPB response
We are sorry to hear this. For gardens with squirrels, we would recommend a metal suet feeder and a different suet product. Our supplier is not able to help with refilling these at present, though the shells can be composted.

Guaranteed entertainement!
The birds in our small London garden love it and we love watching them. The list of bird species pecking at it gets longer and longer; the resourcefulness they display is astounding: we have all sorts of tits, robins, black birds, starlings, pigeons and even wood pigeons pecking at them with the most amazing display of acrobatics. I agree with the above comment about too much wrapping and wish the squirrels weren't so voracious!

Too much plastic!
First of all, these are great and the birds really do love them (particularly blue and long tailed tits)! However, I ordered a large box of these and was disappointed upon opening that each of the coconuts is individually wrapped in plastic- what is the need for this? Can these either be boxed unwrapped or in the compostable wrapping used on other items please?
RSPB response
Thank you. We are investigating packaging alternatives with the supplier. Suet products present a significant challenge due to their high fat content, though we released plastic-free suet cakes last year and hope to apply the same to more products soon.

Excellent but......
The birds who visit my garden love these, but please can we have a better quality of string hanging loops? Every single one in my curent batch has broken, causing the coconut to fall to the ground & I've had to improvise using garden string! They're hung from a metal feeding hook so are not rubbing on rough surfaces, so that's not the cause of the breakages.
RSPB response
Thank you. It is great that the birds are enjoying these, though we are sorry to hear about the quality issue with the string. This may have been a bad batch. We will pass this to the product team to investigate.
