    Product information

    We've listened to your feedback and redesigned this guardian cage sanctuary. Redeveloped for 2021 with 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 haven for small birds to feed in and excluding large birds from your RSPB ground table (sold separately).

    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, also available.

     

    Base measures: Width 58cm x Depth 58cm x Height 35cm

    Made from powder-coated steel, the ground protector 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.

    Good quality but not badger proof!
    Bought this as we have several cats mooching around. Seems good quality although a tad expensive. We have a badger that visits every night and devours any bird food that's left. So we had an enormous hole in the lawn the following morning. Have consigned it to the garage but would recommend if you're badger free.

    Rusting already in less than a week!
    Good design which allows a decent gap around the edge of the feeder to stop the bigger birds reaching the table if they put their heads through.

    Very disappointed though that it started to rust WITHIN ONE WEEK of being used!!... it’s going to look very tatty very quickly so not actually worth the money despite the good design.

    Feed the squirrels
    I was very excited to take delivery of the cage and tray. I thought “Finally. Tough luck squirrels.” That was until this morning. I looked out my bedroom window and I see a squirrel squeezing it’s head and body through the holes. What a disappointment! I’m at a loss now as to what I can do to stop them. Help me please. I’m at war with them. Good quality materials and certainly a reasonable deterrent . Not quite the success I was hoping for.
    RSPB response
    We are sorry to hear this. This sanctuary should still deter most squirrels, except for particularly small and juvenile ones. You can set our Adjustable Ground Sanctuary to a narrower gauge, or you could try our Squirrel Buster feeders.

    Narrow mesh sanctuary
    This is fantastic for protecting mealworms from magpies, jackdaws and seagulls who would otherwise hoover everything up. The robins and sparrows are very appreciative. The blackbirds seemed sadly locked out initially and so I got them a wider mesh sanctuary. But it turned out to my surprise to be unnecessary as a female blackbird has now found she can squeeze through the narrow mesh after all! She is feeding babies so is very determined!

    Sturdy, strong, and Well Made
    I'm afraid I'm not using this for its intended purpose- we had a roosting box come down last spring, and never got around to putting it back up, (the birds never seemed to use it) and after a month or so I realised our resident woodmice had moved into it.

    Wanting to protect them from the high numbers of neighbourhood cats we have, I got this to put over the box. So far it's thwarted the cats, and the mice happily go about their business cleaning up the peanuts dropped by the woodpeckers.
