Why have a Bird Bath in your garden ?
Birds need water for drinking and for bathing. They need water to keep their feathers in good condition to serve as insulation for those cold winter nights. Seed eaters need to drink plenty of water as their diet is so dry. Other birds, such as blue tits may drink more in the winter because their diet of dry nuts does not provide them with as much water as their summer fare of juicy caterpillars.
Bird Baths can be a shallow dish or tray, or a larger container such as an inverted dustbin lid, all suitable for putting water in. You could make a more permanent water hole by digging a shallow scrape in a flower bed and lining with with plastic held down with stones. Ideally, a pond will provide water for drinking and bathing all year round and will attract all kinds of wildlife to your garden.
