Just in case you wondered: this is really only of interest to family and friends – or in the unlikely event that someone was totally gripped by the birdbath saga – it’s for them. It’s the post script to this account of the Big Bird Bath Disaster.

Now anyone who says “There’s a crack in your bird bath” can expect to get brayed.

That looks terrific – better luck this time. Is it made of a different stone?

Thanks! It’s identical, apart from the cracks (so far..).
They thought it might have been the heat…(a mystery in other words, so our fingers are well an truly crossed.)

Haha. I like all the pics of me! (Apart from the one where receding hairline is obvious). Like the disorted perspective of pic showing your side of the thing. Lets hope it outlasts us.

A fine looking bird bath. Now to keep it filled. When I looked at the spiral I thought maybe it was a channel along which to feed a drip line so the bird bath is always full. I wish there was some other way to get our line in there other than over the side.When I got my large bird bath the water kept disappearing. I was sure there was a crack and sent for a new one. Then I realized that the water was syphoning back down the line as soon as the supply stopped. I finally worked it out but have made the same mistake another three times when filled my water feature from the tanks down below. Turn off the pump and forget to take the hose out of the water. At least it goes back onto the tank.

There’s no artificial fill..Last one we had was always emptying because the birds would keep coming and sploshing about in it and spilling the water everywhere. In this one they splosh and it doesn’t spill. Excellent.
Mind you – endless rain helps too…Xx

Very nice and totally understated as we would expect from you. Will you, henceforth, be referring to users of this new facility as “tweets”? How long did Charles have to wait with his hands in his pockets before something landed in it? Judging by the size, he’ll be blogging about a walk around it soon, no doubt.
