I enjoy taking images of the birds that visit my garden so have steered clear of using feeders with squirrel proof cages... until we saw this one on offer yesterday.
I feed the birds therefore I also feed the local squirrel population... the trouble is they also destroy my feeders.
Anything made of plastic is soon chewed through... nuts and seeds are so much easier to eat off the ground.
So the plastic feeders were all discarded and replaced by metal for all the different foods we put out.
OK the squirrels still get a seed or ten but my need to buy replacements has ceased (fingers crossed).
It now has pride of place next to the patio... and the Blue Tits love it.
Will it keep the vandals out?... watch this space.
