If you are looking to feed the squirrels in your garden or keep them off your bird feeders, then our sturdy squirrel feeder is perfect. Squirrels access the food by lifting the lid of the feeder with their nose, then taking what they want before the lid closes behind them. This sturdy squirrel feeder is built to last and is made from durable FSC managed timber, with the lid having a corrosion-resistant hinge. With a generous hopper that is easily filled with suitable food, this is an ideal feeder to attract red squirrels to the garden in the areas they live in, plus to keep nuisance grey squirrels off bird feeders.

I bought this feeder in an attempt to keep the squirrels off the bird feeders. I filled it with peanuts initially. The squirrels worked out how to open it in no time at all. They enjoyed the peanuts. Unfortunately, they were still interested in the food in the bird feeders. I put some of the food that I was using in the bird feeders in the squirrel feeder along with the peanuts. That seems to be working. The feeder is well-made and designed so that the lid will fall back down once the squirrel gets his head out of the feeder. The perspex window is useful as it not only shows the squirrels what is in the feeder but also enables you to see clearly when the feeder is getting empty. My only slight niggle is that the feeder is held on by a single screw. I found that the feeder had tilted to one side one morning. Whether this was squirrel or cat induced, I am not sure. I ended up removing the central screw from the wooden bar above the lid and putting in a longer screw that screwed through the feeder into the fixing post. That held the feeder more securely in place.29/05/2023
The feeder was out of stock when I first ordered it but it was delivered promptly as soon as available. Anything in wood is not squirrelproof and this box will ultimately go the way of the last and be chewed until it leaks its contents, but it looks sturdy enough to put up some resistance. If there was a second hole for fixing nails it would not swivel round when the squirrels decide to attack it. Or have I just got mutant squirrels?25/02/2022

It is very sturdy and beautifully made. I've placed on the fence at the bottom of my small garden and I just love to sit in my kitchen eating breakfast and watching the antics of my squirrels. They lift the lid with their nose and dive in. I'll be ordering more peanuts before long.26/01/2019
Our squirrel feeder is suitable for both Grey and Red squirrels, with both species quickly able to learn how to lift the lid to get to the food inside. Generally speaking, we do not advocate feeding Grey squirrels, as this non-native species is widely considered a pest, as along with causing considerable damage to trees, it has contributed to the huge decline in native Red squirrels. However, an exception to the rule is that sometimes a dedicated squirrel feeder is the best way to keep Grey squirrels off bird feeders.
For Red squirrels and in the remaining areas of the British Isles they still occur - the stronghold being the Scottish Highlands and through Moray to Aberdeenshire - squirrel feeders in gardens are a good way to help populations expand. For areas where both species occur - notably the Central Belt in Scotland and the far north of England - then it’s best not to put out a feeder, as it only encourages the increase in Greys which can also carry squirrel pox and pass this to Reds - which kills Red squirrels but not Grey squirrels. Such feeding also hinders the efforts of conservation organisations which are aiming to eliminate Grey squirrels in order to allow Red squirrels to recolonise areas they were previously present.
