Coco Feeders

Just got back from Pets At Home to get bird food and brought back a bucket of Coco Feeders which is a half of a coconut never seen it before but it says it's a hit with Blue Tits, Robins & Woodpeckers. Anyone ever used them before are they good sucess?

Assume you mean the ones filled with suet, seeds etc ?

If so then yes, especially with blue and great tits, still no woodpeckers for me tho, unfortunately

The other downside for them in my garden is that the squirrels chew through the hanging string very easily, not uncommon for mine to be on the ground within a day or so

Will put some out again once autumn kicks in.

Yeah they work great but starlings can feed off them too as they did when i put mine up.You do have the added advantade of being able to refill with your own suet mixture.
