Shenstone Theatre Bird Bath & Drinker

The Shenstone Bird Bath is made from an environmentally friendly material called Clayplas+ which combines 30% recycled plastic with 70% clay to give a lightweight durable finish that offers the appearance of an aged stone finish. The shenstone bird bath and bird drinker looks really lovely with any garden backdrop and will last for many years. Maintenance is just an occasional wash over and the clayplas+ material has a 10 year structural guarantee from the manufacturer.

The theatre step design provides safe drinking not just for birds but other pollinators and insects that might like to sip from the shallow edges of the water basin. The bird bath comes with a detachable base section which raises it around 10 cm above ground level. The shenstone bird bath is embossed around the rim of the basin with the opening lines from a well known verse extracted from the W H Davies poem 'Leisure' .

' What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare.'

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.
