Has lasted much longer than the nut feeders of other popular brands I have been buying from Amazon. The wire mesh is stronger, so the squirrels have found it much harder to destroy .They used to chew through most of the other brands within a few weeks and tear large holes in the wire mesh. The RSPB feeder has put up a strong fight, although one of them has succumbed finally and lost one segment of the wire mesh under the relentless assault by the squirrels. These are big feeders so take a lot of nuts to fill, but the advantage is that you do not need to replenish every day. Attract a variety of garden birds, and the mesh size is small enough to enable the birds to peck at the peanuts, without the risk of choking on whole nuts, as the mesh is smaller than the size of average peanuts.
Excellent all metal (stainless steel mesh) I gave up with the plastic versions due to squirrels in the garden, this is a brilliant very robust feeder, thoroughly recommended. Also buying it from the RSPB it is going to a good cause.
