“ Brand: Gardman / Type: Feeder „
My son has an interest in birds, all started at school when his class did a topic on birds. Lewis wanted to buy some bird feeders for the garden, he saved his own pocket money for a few weeks and bought a cheap plastic one from the pet shop with a bag of peanuts to put in it this was just the start of his obsession. We have since purchased nest boxes, tables and more bird feeders the latest addition is the ladybird peanut feeder, I actually chose this one for him.
I purchased the Ladybird peanut feeder from Amazon Uk as I have a voucher to use on the site. Ladybird peanut feeder cost £6.99 with free postage.
There was a few other designs to choose from like an Apple and a Butterflies but I liked the Ladybird because it looks bright and cute.
The Ladybird peanut feeder is a good size measuring 20 cm from the head to the bottom their is a 10 cm red hanging chain attached to the lid of the feeder.
Ladybird peanut feeder is made from metal with wire mesh on the body. The mesh is bright red in colour with a few black spots on it. The mesh holes are small so only the smaller garden birds can poke their beak in to feed on the peanuts.
Ladybird peanut feeder has bendy black wire legs to make it more realistic I guess and the lid is secure as it twists onto the feeder. The lid is stiff and takes a firm hand to open it to top up with the peanuts, I get my husband to open it for me. From the lid is the red hanging chain on the end of this is a hoop so you can hang it up onto a hook with a generous 10 cm of chain it could be hung anywhere in the garden. We have ours hanging down the side of our wooden shed and my son can see it from our living room window.
The Ladybird peanut feeder is bright and attractive to look at this is one of the reasons I got it as I felt something bright would look better in the garden for the birds especially in this dull winter.
Some of the birds we have seen pecking at the Ladybird feeder are House Sparrows, Starlings, and Tits. As I said the bigger sized birds cant their beaks in giving these little birds a chance.
I highly recommend the Ladybird peanut feeder. Its good value for money, a good size and robust.
