Better than I initially thought....
on 9 June 2012
We have several birdseed feeders in the garden and have regular visits from most of the tits ( great , blue , longtailed)and finches( green and bull) and the odd woodpecker. I had noted goldfinches on a neighbours teazels so I bought some nyjer seed but found them way too small for conventional feeders and do not work if simply mixed with conventional seed mixes.
Quick search found the solution . The Gardman feeder arrived promptly from Amazon . Initial impressions however were that it is very "plasticky" and lightweight.
However the goldfinches ( a pair) have been on it daily for the last week since they discovered it ( ca 2days) - even in recent ( as or 8/6/2012) the gale force winds which were making the feeders swing out horizontally.
Evidently they prefer the narrow seed aperture which also (mostly) stops the any seed spilling out .
The unit loads and seals easily ( it appears to be remarkably waterproof) and its small size seems to make is squirrel proof ( they fall off).
Definitley recommended! ( Good price too!)
