Johnston & Jeff Ground Bird Feeder


In Stock


Supports & protects wildlife

Have you got lots of ground-feeding birds in your garden that don’t use your traditional bird feeders?  But are you worried if you scatter seeds on the ground, that big greedy birds like pigeons and magpies will eat it all and scare away all the ground feeders?

It is quite a common problem, but we have a solution! Our Ground Bird Feeder Sanctuary is designed to be placed on the ground to ensure small, ground-feeding birds such as robins, song thrushes, wrens and house sparrows can access food.

Just place your usual birdseed in the feeder tray and leave it in your garden for them to feast on. The gaps in the metal cage are big enough to let those lovely little ground feeders access the food safely all year round, keeping out those bigger greedy birds, squirrels, cats and any other predators.

Made from steel. Dimensions: H 30cm x W 50cm

Buy Land Plant Trees

At the core of Chimney Sheep is our Community Interest Company, Buy Land Plant Trees (BLPT). For every purchase you make with us, 20% of the profit facilitates the planting of trees on agriculturally poor land in Cumbria.

We set up BLPT in 2019 as a ‘boots on the ground’ tree planting initiative. The company is run by us and the tree planting is done by us. We do it to help you and us to reduce our impact on the planet. The trees we plant reduce CO2 output as well as contribute to the reduction of flooding and the creation of habitats for wildlife.

BLPT isn’t a tick box exercise nor a distant and detached carbon offset company. In fact, this is as much part of our business as the products we sell and is an integral part of our ethos. We are big believers in the phrase ‘think globally, act locally’ and want to make a genuine difference

Very Large Birds Defeated

Birds like Ravens, Crows and Pigeons can't access the food but unfortunately Starlings can! As they are always in flocks too, they quickly demolish all the food and the blackbirds and sparrows etc. don't get a look in! Disappointing in that respect.

Valerie Bolton

It is sturdily built and just what I was looking for. Unfortunately although it keeps wood pigeons out, it does not deter the town pigeons who must be more slimly built. We found four inside it once, and gave them a bad fright when they struggled to get out. We have put wires round it now, two horizonal rows bound round the existing vertical ribs, and this works. The ground birds can get in, the pigeons are frustrated. But nothing will keep the squirrels out.

Mike Halligan

Excellent design, easy to use and to clean. This feeder works perfectly, keeping pigeons, magpies and doves at bay and allowing smaller ground feeders access to food they would otherwise be denied.

Karen Armstrong

I've been searching for a ground feeder like this for years, can't praise the designer of this highly enough, delighted with it. My ground feeders had to make do with what fell out of the tube feeders or a scattering on the ground, which didn't last as the wood pigeons would scoop it up in no time. The food I've got at the moment has barley grains in it, I just move the feeder lifting it with the clever little knob on the top, the pigeons clean it up leaving the good stuff for the blackbirds, robins, dunnocks etc, The mesh basin is easy to fill and replace, nice and open to keep the seed dry. It's a joy watching the birds feed now as they all gather up around the feeder - at last!

Sarah Phelan

The blackbirds and robins love it. Pigeons are confused about it. Unfortunately the squirrels also love it so have to divert them with peanuts.
