|What did we think of this great novel bird feeder?|

About the Bumble Bee Bird FeederThis feeder is currently available to buy from any leading garden centre for £7.99. With that in mind, I was really pleasantly surprised when our feeder turned up at just how big it was! I'm not sure what I was expecting but it's a rather big bee, and as such can hold 900g of feed!
Due to the design of the feeder, it is ideal for sunflower hearts, black sunflowers, and peanuts. We didn't have any of the above as our starlings and their young have been rather spoilt with meal worm of late! We have since purchased some peanuts and found it very easy for Max to fill up.

Our thoughts on the Bumble Bee Bird FeederI love the size of this feeder, I love that it's bright yellow and stands out in the garden and for the size is good value for money.
We filled the bee up and placed up high out of the way of predators but we are yet to see any birds on the feeder. This isn't to say they haven't been on it, we're only around in the mornings and evenings to watch the birds. But, this may also be due to the fact our garden is in direct competition with my neighbour for the bird's al fresco dining.
I'm sure over time we will have visitors to our bee feeder, we have the sparrows on the fat balls and the starlings, well when she had her babies in the nest still would just squawk at me by 5pm, telling us to hurry up with her tea!
I do believe this feeder does what it sets out to do, and that's to get children interested. Max keeps an eye out and can see the feeder from his bedroom, and whilst the birds are yet to visit his feeder, they do come in the garden and he's slowly learning their names and can now recognise that distinct call of the Magpie!
ChapelWood Fun Bird FeedersThe Bumble Bee isn't the only feeder Chapelwood do for getting kids involved, there is also a Dragonfly and an Owl, so difficult to chose a favourite.
