    a great sturdy versatile feeder
    I have had one of these feeders for approx 12 months now. I agree with the other positive reviews about this product. I too keep the door closed by wrapping coated garden wire around the bottom (opening) to stop the door from coming open. One other thing I do when I fill the feeder each time, is I put a long twig at each end, through the bottom holes (the twig goes right through the feeder). This allows some birds to perch on the twigs to feed, rather than on the feeder itself. (I've seen a robin do this). Suet blocks rest on the twigs so they remain in place.

    very versatile
    very versatile feeder, looks lovely too. Nice and strong, the squirrels have to do a lot of gymnastic to get at it, but can't open it.
    A word of caution, though, if you have parakeets visiting your garden: they hang from the door side and then it opens! I've fixed it by tying the door to the cage with a small piece of garden wire. (yes, it was the parakeets, not the squirrels, I've saw them do it!)
    May be it could have a butterfly screw to close it?

    RSPB response: Thank your for your review we are glad you are enjoying your Dual suet feeder. Your feedback regarding the door has been passed on to our product manager.

    Perfect for my needs
    Wanted a double suet cake feeder,as I can go through 2 before I've got out of bed on a morning. As it happens,I can fit 3 in,which is even better, The feeder is as popular with the birds,as any other suet cake feeder I've used. Got it on offer for half-price too,so no complaints here.

    A No Nonsense Feeder
    Had no problem like Jacqueline with regards to the roof. I had been using a circular suet feeder and cutting the blocks up to fit them in, so decided to get one the correct shape!
    I could hear the woodpecker waiting to be fed - his distinctive ""chip"" sounding very impatient!
    I filled the feeder and hung it up and by the time I got in the house and looked out of the window, he was already on it!
    All the other birds use it too - the suet blocks seem to be a firm favourite with them all. Even saw a chaffinch feeding her babies from it..... Makes it all worthwhile!

    Another Good Feeder
    Having had success with the smaller suet cake feeder I thought I would purchase the dual suet ball/cake feeder. This fits more into it and I was amazed how quickly it was empty again. The little blue tits especially keep flying to this feeder. Lovely to watch.

    BOURNEMOUTH BIRDS TOO FUSSY?
    I thought this a great idea, since my single cake version was doing such a brisk trade! But for some reason, none of the birds who visit my garden have got the hang of it. The smaller no-roof version continues to be popular, but not even starlings use the roofed one! I have given up now as the second lot of cakes have been left to go mouldy, and ordered some different types..

    Sturdy suet feeder
    I thought I would try this feeder as a replacement for a smaller one that has become worn out. I am very pleased with it. It is sturdy and I like the protective covering, strong handle and secure opening. The covering also seems to put the squirrels off - more than for my other more exposed feeders. I found 2 suet blocks were fine in it or 4 buggy balls at a time. I am so pleased with it I have ordered 2 more to replace other worn out feeders. I don't have a problem with suet cakes going mouldy as mentioned by another reviewer. I guess I'm lucky with them being eaten up fairly quickly by feathered guests (and squirrels - who have to go to a lot of effort to nibble at the suet while dangling precariously).

    Not the cheapest, but robust and capacious
    I found I can fit 3 slabs in it (at a squeeze) - one of each 'type' (insect, mealworm, raisin). Nearly a kilo of suet meant having to rotate other feeders around the pole to balance it out a bit. Looks and seems robust enough - will have to see how it survives the test of time. I had trouble with mouldy cakes during the winter. Maybe the 'lid' will make a difference, maybe not. Tits took to it from day 1, sampling all 3 types of cake, whereas they have been turning their proverbial noses up at the fat balls. The starlings haven't worked out how access it - yet. Maybe because the cakes are such a tight fit (with there being 3 rather than 2). Maybe 2 or 3mm extra on the dimensions and 3 cakes would be a 'truer' fit. I put 2 in and it looked a bit empty. The cakes are a bit soft in my opinion, but given that they were immediately attractive to the tits and they came at a quid discount for 2 bundles with the feeder feeder, who am I to complain :)
