Deidre said:Help needed to deter the grey squirrel from eating the bird food out off a squirrel proof feeder, he manages to get his head in and eat the nuts!!!. Ihave refrained from putting nuts in for the birds which I love to watch when they visit my garden. Deidre
Depending on how the squirrel(s) accesses the feeders, if there are trees within a couple of metres, they will comfortably leap across, but if they're climbing the pole, then a squirrel baffle should do the trick, but it needs to be around 1.5-1.8mtrs above ground level, or they will leap on to it.
They are available from many outlets,

Deidre said:Thanks for that . There is a bush near the bird table so he climbs up there . Trees not close to the bird table.
As for stopping squirrels, if there's a way, they'll find it at whatever cost to themselves.
