During this extremely long spell of very wet & very windy weather in the UK, I have been so frustrated at the amount of wet and congealed seed which I have had to throw away when fetching my feeders in every night.
Why cannot companies such as Gardman (who’s feeders I use) design a feeder which is truly weatherproof plus easy to fill and easy to clean. Such feeders are available in the USA (although very expensive) but not in the UK.
I could easily design one myself but have no way of making it. likely to act if others echo my views. Do other bird lovers feel the same about this? Tony
I so agree with all you say. I get so fed up with the bird feed that is wasted – which means that when the birds need it most it is wasted.
I used to bring my bird feeders in on a night when I used hanging feeders.
I am trying to make a waterproof feeder, but it is so difficult
You say you could easily design one yourself. How would you do it? I’m looking at ways as well.
I have a meshed ground feeder and I put food in there. I also put wood, old plastic sheets etc. up against the feeder to keep the food dry. It does help
Maybe we should pool ideas. I’m in my 60’s but I do feel strongly about this
