Does the item needs a protective coat of paint to protect it against the weather. I suspect it doesn’t but this isn’t mentioned on the Amazon or your website so thought it best to check. Many thanks Stuart
We treat all our outdoor Bird Tables with a pet-safe water-based wood preservative giving the wood protection from all types of weather throughout the year.
Depending on the types of weather that you get in the space of a year we would recommend retreating yearly to keep the wood protected from the rain and sun damage.
I recently bought a Fordwich rare bird table retreat from you,through Amazon, you advertised that it was Pidgeon proof, sadly that wasn’t the case, as the openings are quite extensive,as well as pigeons getting in, I also have had magpies, I have decided to keep the table & made my adjustments to it. However, I would let you know for future reference.
We’ve designed Fordwich Bird Table to discourage larger birds from feeding but I’m afraid although we get much success we can’t guarantee that it will have a 100% success rate.
Sadly not all larger birds like Pigeons will be discouraged, and the smaller openings will not be enough.
If you see this happening, we would recommend another place for larger birds that they can easily get to and hopefully, they will leave the Fordwhioch feeding station alone.

I need a bird table but have two problems. The one I have, now dead, kept blowing over, and I need to be able to clean it properly. Rent a mobile make a lot of mess (starlings).
If you have an open garden that is windy, we will recommend adding the Garden Bird Table Anchoring Pegs these fit over each foot of the BIrd TAble and into the ground reducing the chances of the feeding station blowing over.
All of our Bird Tables are easy to clean, making sure that after it rains that you sweep any excess water away and any old food. We would also recommend retreating between season to protect the wood against the weather conditions.
Just wanted to ask if I needed to treat the Fordwich bird table or if it can go straight out into the garden? Would I need to treat the wood in future years too?
Your new Bird Table can go in the garden straight out of the box with no need of treating the wood.
We would recommend retreating the bird table between seasons to protect the wood every year against the weather.
I have just had a bird table delivered from you. I ordered it via Amazon. It is damaged. The top half of it is broken. It looks as though it has been knocked around in transit. I want to return it, and it says I must organise the return. This item is too big for me to take to a post office or anywhere else. How do I return this?
All order that is the damage suffered in transit can be collected and returned for either a full refund or exchange.
We would arrange the collection with one of our couriers, the delivery person would have the return label on them and stick it on the box.
All you need to do is make sure that there is someone to hand the box over or collected from a safe place.
I wish to purchase the Fordwich bird table, can you tell me if it is possible to ship to France and the cost?
We ship to all major European countries.
We calculate the cost and delivery time the checkout, so just fill in your information as usual.
We use a trackable delivery service, and you’ll receive an order confirmation and then an email with tracking information.
