    Keeps a variety of birds happy
    Having read the two previous negative reviews, I wanted to leave a review. I have been buying the Favourites Blend and Favourites Blend Extra for a few years now and have always found the quality very good. Yes, the birds do leave the sunflower seeds until last, but they do come back and finish them. I have a reasonable variety of birds - loads of Starlings and also a lot of Black Birds, but also Sparrows, Chaffinches, Robins, Blue Tits, Great Tits, Collared Doves, Wood Pigeons, Magpies and Jackdaws, plus the odd other variety for a quick visit every now and then. I mostly feed it from the ground and very rarely is anything left at the end of the day and I do put quite a lot down. In fact during breeding season it can be gone in 30 minutes and I could leave several more lots during the day and it would still be eaten. My garden does have a few large trees overlooking it and the birds are waiting every morning for me to leave the food out, The black birds don't even wait for me to leave and come down whilst I'm still there. One of them is so brave he comes into our kitchen if the back door is open and there is no food out! I have proof on my phone as I have filmed him! I know it is the same one as he is slightly larger in size and has a larger beak. Anyway, I have not had a bad batch yet and will definitely continue to use this food as well as your suet pellets and no grow ground mix - all are very good quality. I have tried other, cheaper priced food and that is often left uneaten.

    Excellent feed
    I have tried all of the feeds from the RSPB and this is by far the most popular with our birds. It is used in a vertical squirrel proof feeder. Different birds like different seeds and interestingly the seeds that some of the birds throw out attracts the ground feeding birds as well. Enjoying this feed we have: Goldfinches, Greater Spotted Woodpeckers, Siskins, Blue Great Coal and Willow Tits, Bullfinches, Greenfinches, Chaffinch, Starlings and Nuthatches.

    I would highly recommend this feed if you have a variety of birds and want to keep them happy with one feed. We have one other feeder with just peanuts in.

    Thank you - this review should help others. We'd love to see a photo of the birds enjoying the blend in your anti-squirrel feeder! Send to shopping@rspb.org.uk if you snap one.

    Too much sunflower seed
    My garden attracts starlings sparrows, blue tits, blackbirds, robins, wagtails, collar doves, wood pigeons, magpies, jackdaws. I use the feed on a bird table and in feeders. The feeders are emptied by the birds every day, but all of the sunflower seeds end up on the ground as the birds pick them out and dump them, so most of the bulk of this feed is of no value. The table attracts the larger birds and most of the feed goes but the sunflower seeds are last to go. Disappointing.

    Thank you for your review. Unfortunately birds will often eat their favourite ingredients first. We know that Sunflower Hearts are popular, but Suet Sprinkles and Dried Mealworms are even more so.

    Not favourite at all!
    I spent £39.99 on a large sack of Favourites Blend- what a waste of money!
    The birds eat the mealworms and suet pieces but will not touch the sunflower seeds. It’s as if they are poisonous.
    There is obviously a serious quality control issue here. I have always been happy with RSPB bird food before but feel a refund or voucher would be a welcome gesture for this product and I would expect to see it removed from sale so that others do not waste money.
    RSPB response
    We are sorry to hear this. There are no quality issues with the Sunflower Hearts. Birds will eat their favourite ingredients first (suet, mealworm) and wait for them to be refilled. We would recommend giving them more time with the hearts.
