Water is very important to birds, both for drinking and for keeping themselves clean. Siting of the bath is also very important - birds will only use it if they feel safe. They are most vulnerable to predators when bathing, so position your bird bath at least two metres from cover, like a tree or hedge, to help keep them safe. You could try placing the bath at different points around the garden to find the most popular site. Add stones and pebbles to the bath to simulate a natural, shallow pool. This may encourage more birds to bathe. Shenstone bird bath Decorated with lines from W H Davies’ poem Leisure, this charming bird bath is made from Clayplas ® - a mix of recycled plastic and clay.
