Red Post Box Peanut Feeder
Red Post Box Bird Peanut Feeder. This fully functional hanging feeder is perfect for any garden or hanging space on a balcony with its heavy-duty nylon hanging cord. Unmistakably British, this traditional red Post Box bird feeder is constructed from exterior grade ply-board, has polyresin details and an outdoor, water-based, non-toxic paint. The iconic British Post Box started appearing on the British mainland from 1853, and were initially green to blend in with the countryside. However people complained they couldn't find the post boxes so after other options were discounted the pillar box red colour, now so well known, was introduced in 1874, taking around 10 years to complete the programme of re-painting. Pillar Box Red remained the standard colour for boxes from then on with few exceptions. Simply slide up the roof to fill it with peanuts to attract all types of wild birds. The design of the bird feeder helps the food to stay dry and also ensures the birds cannot sit down or poop in the food (an important aspect in preventing disease spreading amongst our wild birds). Only small birds are able to use the feeder comfortably so larger birds, such as pigeons, magpies and crows etc. are unable to get access. The red Post Box Peanut Feeder measures approx H 23.5cm x W 12cm x D 13.5cm.
