reddish sludge

I've never had a bird bath before, and bought it for the birds to enjoy, not for the pleasure of watching them. however, the water in it keeps filling with reddish sludge, and I am intrigued to find out what causes this. It is used by sparrows and blackbirds, but the main user is the wood pigeon who spends long periods of time relaxing in it as if it were a nest. Is this the cause of the sludge?

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, it is pleasing to hear that your bird bath is being used by various species and you are providing the water they need to wash. In regards to the red sludge please contact our wildlife enquiries team who will be able to help with this query.

Best thing we have bought for our garden!

This bird bath is without doubt the best thing we have bought for our garden. It is greatly enjoyed by the blackbirds and pigeons. As some people have commented, it is possibly a bit deep for the smaller birds, but we have given them a ceramic dish at ground level for a bird bird, which they enjoy.

This bird bath is attractive, well designed (the central column can be filled with stones for extra stability) and easy to clean. Much as we would have liked one, we couldn't have afforded a stone bird bath. This was cheap, but cheerful. By Aljie, on 19 Dec 2015

I'm afraid to say...

...for some reason the birds don't like it. Apart from an occasional pigeon I have not seen a single bird using it since I purchased it in several months ago. I have tried adding some pebbles to it, thinking that maybe the steep sides were the problem - still no interest from my feathered friends. I have now put it in the shed and reinstated the rusty old one I intended to replace it with. For some reason the birds love that one. All very puzzling. I just assumed that as I was buying it from the RSPB it would be fit for purpose. Sadly this was not the case.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review. This is strange as our bird baths are usually enjoyed by garden birds, particularly when pebbles are added creating a shallow pool. It may be that they need time to get used to it, as wild birds are naturally apprehensive of new items. By Paul, on 27 Nov 2015

Product information
An excellent value bird bath, made from lightweight weatherproof resin with a classic verdigris finish. Easy to clean, shallow dish (7 cm) for bird safety.
Simple assembly required, no tools necessary. Supplied with ground pegs.

  • - Easy to clean
  • - Safe depth for birds
Advice
For extra stability use the supplied ground pegs. You can also fill the base with sand to make the bird bath even more sturdy. Be careful not to over-tighten when assembling the bird bath, as this can lead to cracking.

Birds need water for drinking and bathing. Water is particularly important during the winter when natural supplies may be frozen, and in dry, hot weather during the summer when water can be hard to find.



Keeping your bird bath clean will help keep your birds healthy, happy and coming back for more.
