If you're fed up with squirrels and large birds taking all of the bird food you put out then this Chinese Lantern feeder could be perfect for you, with a metal cage and gaps only big enough to fit some of Britain's favourite, small garden birds such as blue tits and goldfinches, squirrels and other predators are put off by the cage and will go else where to try and find food.
This bird peanut feeder has been made from sturdy steel and it features a screw on lid which makes filling and cleaning this feeder easy, and once filled use the lantern feeders attached hook to hang up in your garden, to begin attracting and feeding your feathered friends.
*A Note On Juvenile Squirrels and birds
The Nuttery squirrel proof feeders protect against adult grey squirrels and large adult birds. Some large birds wont be able fit their body through the bars of the feeder but could be able to get their beaks inside the feeder to access the food.
Young squirrels can potentially squeeze into the bars and access the feeder. Young squirrels look very similar to adults but are far fluffier and more flexible! Squirrels are born in March, April, July and August so there may well be a risk around these months. This issue will be the problem of any squirrel proof feeder with bars. The bar gaps cannot be made smaller as this could be a risk for the birds. You may also find that young jackdaws, crows and pigeons may find their way in, again this is a seasonal problem.
A dash of chilli flakes mixed in with the nuts or seeds will have no effect on the birds at all but will deter the squirrels if they do manage to access the feeder inside.

Quality Price ValueRobust & pretty feedee A beautiful feeder - love the colour and unusual shape. The screw top, quality robust materials & clever design works well to keep larger birds & squirrels out. Peanuts last much longer without the ruffians getting in! Seen blue tits, great tits, nuthatch & goldfinches use it. Woodpecker can reach with his long beak which is lovely. Karen 19-09/10
