If squirrels are eating the nuts that you put out for the birds, then this can be very frustrating.
Squirrels, grey ones particularly, seem to be masters of finding ways to reach nuts and have been shown to be able to construct paths through elaborate assault courses set up for them in order to reach the nuts!
Therefore you need a little cunning too. First of all ensure that the said feeder is out of the range of leaps from the side or overhanging trees, so perhaps put the feeder in the middle of the garden.
Now you need to stop them climbing from the ground up... greasing the pole with a thick and slippery grease once a week should ensure that they are unable to reach it, as when they leap up to try to climb the pole they won't have any grip and will slide down to the ground.
