The green ceramic dipper bird bath fits perfectly in the smallest of gardens but is equally happy in a large border or even sited in wooded areas. It is made from hardened, frost resistant ceramic with a hand-finished soft green glaze which contrasts beautifully with the natural terracotta rim.
This bird bath has a flat base making it ideal for placing on the ground on patios, decks, walls, steps or lawns. The design makes it suitable for the smallest garden or courtyard, allowing visiting birds to drink, bathe and preen. Being so low to the ground, it will also attract many beneficial insects, along with hedgehogs, frogs, and toads.
Having a water source available in hot and cold weather is vital to create a healthy garden environment for wildlife. All bird species need water, so providing a shallow dish or bird bath in your garden will give your wildlife access to vital drinking and bathing water. If the bath is too exposed, birds may not use it. Ideally site it with nearby cover such as bushes or trees where birds can escape if they feel threatened.
However, avoid areas that may provide predators with cover from which they can easily hide and attack.
