To make a bird bath that’s safe and accessible, it needs to have shallow, sloping sides, be as wide as possible, and have a maximum depth of 10cm. An old dustbin lid or large shallow plant saucer are good options.
Once you’ve found your bath, follow the easy steps below:
- Choose where you want to place your bird bath
- Make the surface nice a level so the bath won’t tip over
- Place your chosen bath on to the surface and fill with stones, pebbles, large marbles etc. This is to stop the bird getting completely soaked through or stuck.
- Finally fill the bath with water and hey presto!
