R421246 £34.99 Ports close when a squirrel lands Love them or loathe them, squirrels are a feature of many gardens across the country.Their sharp claws and teeth can make a real mess of your bird feeders, particularly if you have plastic perches.They can also hoover up your bird food as quickly as you put it out, not allowing the birds a look in. Squirrels are great climbers and they are very determined. No bird feeder is completely squirrel- proof, but you can definitely make things more difficult for them. Squirrel buster feeders are a good option, or you could try a plastic or metal baffle which you attach to your feeder pole to deter them climbing up from the ground. See page 22 for our metal baffle cone. For more products from this range please go to rspbshop.co.uk SQUIRRELS
