Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder

We have recently installed a new "squirrel proof" bird feeding pole that will provide a great opportunity to see at close hand some of the rich birdlife that Ferry Meadows has to offer. The pole is located next to the Discovery Den near the main car park.

The pole was made and installed by Assistant Ranger Arthur Smallman and has been constructed entirely from recycled material.

Recent sudies have shown a nationwide decline in the numbers of farmland and woodland birds. One way that we can help the survival of birds that visit our gardens is to provide them with food, especially in hard weather.

We hope you enjoy watching the birds and do let us know if the feeders need a top up or if you see a squirrel that has managed to scale up the pole!
