    Now even bigger with our new premium recipe with mealworms!

    Each bumper box comes with our new suet balls made with our best-selling Super suet, which makes them softer, higher in fat content.

    A real treat for the birds! They are top quality and provide much-needed energy for your garden birds, as they contain 40% more fat than our standard suet balls, plus mealworm pieces for extra nutrition.

    These fat balls are ideal for feeding from a suet ball feeder or loose, whole or crumbled on bird tables and ground feeding tables.

    As with all of our Super suet products, they are suitable to feed all year round as they do not smear or melt in the heat and won't go hard in the winter.

    Contains suet, wheat flour, peanut flour, millet seed, rapeseed, linseed and mealworm pieces.

    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.

    There are no nets on our suet balls - or any other feed we make - we don't use them because birds and other wildlife can get trapped in them.

    Birds and squirrels love these
    Have been putting these out since January and a whole range of birds including starlings, parakeets, lesser spotted woodpecker, pigeons, sparrows and wildlife including squirrels and foxes love them. Buy double large boxes and have to reorder quite often.

    Brilliant !!!
    My birds love these particular suet balls and I can hardly keep up with the demand.
    They are so easy to chop up with sore hands, don't melt in the sun or freeze in the cold, every type of bird loves them and they have keep scores of birds alive this winter.
    My trees are full of expectant birdies from dawn to dusk, just waiting for these.
    They are a little bit dearer than some others but when you see the effect on the health of the wildlife, you soon realise that they are worth every penny.
    Some cheaper products can actually harm birds so buy these instead and enjoy saving lives.
    Well done RSPB - happy birds and happy me !!

    Loved by All
    I use these suet balls in a variety of feeders and ways and all the birds love them. I highly recommend them. They are better all the way around than any others I've used. Also, I appreciated that they don't have mesh on them that potentially traps little birdy feet.

    Birds that eat them in my garden include robins, blue tits, great tits, long-tailed tits, blackbirds, dunnocks, nuthatch, starlings, jackdaws, crows and magpies (if they can get at them).

    A Winter favourite
    Would recommend these very much over the standard suet balls in winter as they are very popular with a variety of birds.

    I put these out over the past week, since which everyday I enjoy seeing a group of six long tailed tits devouring them throughout the day. All the other birds feed on them too: Blue & Great & Coal tit, Robin, Chaffinch and Goldfinch.

    Pigeons, black birds and magpies feed of the bits that drop below.

    Birds love them
    I get sparrows, robins, and blue tits mainly, also long tail tits sometimes. Starlings, magpies and jackdaws gobble up the lot if I don't keep an eye on them or take the feeder in at night and when I am out. Other birds eat bits that fall to the ground. It is a nuisance that they now drop a lot of seeds which grow and I have to keep weeding, but that proves they are fresh.

    Are suet balls still UK made?
    These suet balls are going don a storm although we rarely get to see what is eating them. A pack of 6 does not last a week. We want the economy of the bigger packs but notice that they do not say UK made (unlike the smaller packs). The country of origin is important to us. Are all the suet balls UK made?

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review. I can confirm they are UK made. I apologise for this packaging error.

    It seems that birds in this area are rather spoilt
    The local birds would not so much as look at fat balls from any other supplier - but were guzzling huge quantities of these. Recently however, I was puzzled as suddenly the birds seemed less interested. The mystery was solved when I found that my neighbour has also discovered RSPB Suet products. Birds, it would appear, have no loyalty.
    Then, to compound the insult, the birds have begun to pick out the worms, while spitting the fat onto the ground.
    I have decided to reduce the number of fatball feeders, and to buy the plain suet balls, without worms, and see what happens regarding the mess. I already add worms to the seedfeeder mix.
    Fingers crossed!

    Smaller boxes not such good value
    My birds love these suet balls,the large boxes are better value but I don't like them. For a start I can't store them or lift the box. Therefore I have to find smaller boxes to store them in, the smaller boxes work out much more expensive as I like to buy in bulk. I also find the bigger boxes have more damaged balls when they arrive.

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review, we are very pleased to hear that your birds love these suet balls. Apologies for any damaged suet balls, we have spoken to the manufacturer and to dispatch and improvements have been made to ensure they arrive to you in better condition.

    All the birds loved these
    Can't understand why the previous reviewer's birds didn't like them as all my visitors tuck in the moment I put them out. They are so much better than the harder ones and can still be pecked even when the weather is very cold. I would certainly recommend these super balls

    Bird Frenzy when these get put out!
    I put out a total of 9 fat balls out this morning and between the magpies, jackdaws and starlings they are 2/3rds gone! Definitely the most popular item after the mealworms! I bought an initial box of 150 which were very crumbled but RSPB sent me a replacement this morning and they are perfect. Great customer service.

    Birds demolish these!
    I think these suet balls are great and so do the feathered visitors to my garden as they can easily go through 9 per day via the two feeders I have. I bought the box of 150 last time as I usually get the smaller box of 50 and I was disappointed in the amount of them that had totally crumbled in the bottom of the box. The box was pretty bashed up too so I probably wouldn't order the 150 pack again.

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review, it's fantastic to hear that the birds are enjoying these and you love the product. Apologies that your last box of 150 were not delivered in a good condition. Please contact customer services who will be happy to assist you with a replacement.

    Great quality suet balls
    Now, suet isn't very popular with birds in my area, so I just bought a small pack of these along with small samplers of other suet products to test the waters. I must say that these suet balls are very good value for money!

    Whilst they aren't hugely popular with my birds, they're clearly high quality suet balls and I know that in other areas, birds will love them. Also I've been running the food stocks down and it's amazing how fast these got eaten where the tray wasn't being regularly topped up with mealworms :).

    Consequently, I've ordered a bumper box to keep the suet ball feeder stocked for the near future. A nice ""slow burn"" food that will ensure there's always something there to eat, even when the dastardly pigeons have polished off everything else not nailed down!

    Super fat balls super and wealworm
    These fat balls are the best on the market, very popular with my feathery friends. They may be a bit expensive and there are so many cheaper ones that you can buy. But I tried the cheaper ones after these and they were so hard that they didn't like them, and they went off, so I've gone back to these scrumpsous ones try them for yourself and see. you will get more birds in your garden which is what its all about.

    A bit too popular
    I bought these as the buggy suet balls are no longer available and the birds devour them. I assume that because the suet is softer they are easier to eat and consequently they are eaten very quickly, rather too quickly. The birds will easily empty a feeder full of them in a day. As a result a box of 50 lasts less than half the time that a similar box of the buggy suet balls used to. I've switched to buying the plain suet balls to save money.

    Extremely popular!
    8 balls can go in a day from the two feeders in our tree! Sparrows, blue, great and coal tits, robin, magpie, jackdaw, starlings and the occasional carrion crow find them irresistible. Wood pigeon, various thrushes and dunnock might be picking up the bits that drop onto the lawn, and something has taken the fungi that have sprouted for the first time ever in the last two weeks from among these bits. The feeding birds haven't suffered any losses due to our 2 cats who occasionally try their luck. It seems very unlikely that they could catch a bird at the feeders. (Thankfully they don't have much success elsewhere either, but I digress.) Having used them and their predecessors for two years, these suet balls are extremely popular with the birds. Hoping we'll see some rarer species for these parts going for them one day.

    My fat balls were ignored until they went green! Then had to bin them. That is until I tried your Buggy balls or Super suet balls. They go as fast as I can supply them.

    These are so popular with the birds in our garden that they have pecked their way through 150 of them in 2 months.
    Finches, Tits, Sparrows, Woodpeckers, Blackbirds, Robins all love these. They queue up to eat them from the feeder.
