I am extremely pleased with the bird table. It looks smart, seems practical with the lift off and easy to clean tray, and appears very stable. I don't know how it will fare in the hot sun, as I would think the plastic tray would cause condensation underneath it, but time will tell I guess.
When I phoned the RSPB I wanted to know if it had any kind of wood preserving treatment on it. It took a while to find out, but I found out that it does...and that it should have a life of 10-15 years! So...no painting required! 😊
My ex made my old bird table out if a thick piece of wood and a discarded limb of a birch tree. It has served it's purpose very well, but has been badly leaning to port side now for about 2 years (see photo for proof). It is so rotton now at the base, that I think if you sneezed on it, it would fall over! .... hence, buying this lovely new one! 😊 The old one was placed in the ground, so this one is a better design really, as I will be able to move it around. Moving feeding stations periodically is a good thing as it helps stop birds getting diseases from the ground underneath the bird table, where the bits and pieces fall and can go rotten.

Whilst discussing wood preservative with the RSPB representative, she told me that if I were to paint the bird table with paint or wood presevative, to make sure it is a water based product. This applies to anything that is meant for birds eg. bird boxes (and presumably wildlife stuff in general). Apparently, if you don't, the chemicals can harm the birds, especially in confined places such as bird boxes. When the weather is warm, the inside of the bird box heats up, and toxic fumes will begin to come out of the wood preservative! Wow! I had no idea! This includes pressure-treated wood.
Upon opening, the first thing I did was check to see if all the screws were there, as others have pointed out missing screws. Luckily, all mine were there and sorted them out into the different sizes.
Assembly was easy, but a good tip is to use a power screwdriver as it makes life a lot easier and you will not get blisters. The legs go on first, they have 2 pre-drilled holes so that the screws go in and 2 pilot holes in each side of the stump for them to screw to. Once assembled, it is stood up straight and the tabletop fixed with two screws. Then, the top struts are screwed in pace and finally the plastic top is screwed to the table. All done.
It is a very nice looking open table, with very sturdy feet and also has a good weight. This will not blow over in the wind. If you are concerned about any water staying in the top tray, you could drill some small holes for drainage, but remember the seed will fall through it.
To finish it off, I also purchased some hooks, a fat ball feeder, seed feeder, fat balls and seed. I screwed the hooks at opposite ends to hang the feeders from. I also put seed on the table.
I was not expecting anything for a few days as the birds got used to it, but the next morning had 2 magpies (one hanging from the fat ball feeder) and a crow. I hope the smaller birds come too, as this was the whole idea.
Took a while to arrive, but I suspect they struggle to keep up with demand.
