Echoes ceramic bird bath & stand

RSPB > Bird care > Bird baths

    Save money by buying the bird bath and stand together.

    This lovely glazed ceramic bird bath comes with the first stanza of William Blake's poem 'Auguries of Innocence' inscribed around the edge.

    "To see a world in a grain of sand, And heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour."

    High-fired, frost resistant, durable and sturdy, it's wonderfully ornamental. The attractive rippled, graduated depth makes it safe for birds and a pretty addition to your garden.

    While this bird bath is frost resistant, it is not frost proof. It may be worth protecting it from severe icing conditions and repeated cycles of freezing and defrosting, as all glazed ceramics can eventually suffer water penetration and subsequent frost damage

    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.

    Don't use in winter
    Both the base and the bowl cracked due to frost even though it hasn't been particularly cold. If you buy this bird bath take it in during the winter.

    RSPB response:
    Thank you for your review. These can occasionally crack in winter and if this cracked on your first winter please contact Customer Services who will be able to help.

    Shame
    These are very pretty bird baths but having bought the bath and stand, the bath cracked during the first winter. I replaced it soon after but during the high winds last week the bath toppled off the stand and shattered. It is a real shame because I really like the look of them.

    RSPB response:
    Thanks for your review. Being terracotta they are likely to crack if they fall. However, if it cracked without impact on the first winter we would suggest getting in touch with customer services who will assist you.

    So far so good!
    I bought the bath & stand over a year ago. Many birds & the odd passing cat give it regular use. Certainly the top at times appeared rather unstable, although it never came off, but I have now secured bottom to top. So far there has been no sign of cracking, even when I used hot water on it when it iced over last Winter. It looks good in the garden & is doing the job.

    Elevated one cracked in a year
    I bought two of these - one elevated on a stand and the other to be placed close to the ground. The elevated one has cracked within one year and no longer can hold water - frost this last winter. Expensive mistake.

    The one on the ground seems ok.

    Unstable dish
    Received this as a present 2 years ago and was delighted with its appearance. Unfortunately when large birds used the bath the dish fell off the stand - I don't know what happened to the original silicon that kept it together. Recently it fell off and broke into two, so can no longer use it. If you decide to buy this, use something to keep the two parts properly fixed together.

    It cracked
    Bought this sometime last year (still looking for the receipt). OK at first, it survived the first frosts, even produced an upstanding icicle. But now it is cracked. Not good value.

    without the stand
    I have this bird bath _without_ the stand. It has lasted me through several years of hard frosts, including the crazy winter the year before last when temperatures plummeted to -15C. Also, being somewhat reckless, when it is iced-up I thaw it by pouring boiling water onto the ice. However, mine is on the ground, no stand. Perhaps raising it up in the air on the stand is what is causing so many of these to crack? Or maybe you've just been unlucky and received duff ones. Mine is great, the birds love it, all sorts use it from long-tailed tits right up to wood pigeons, it's my favourite wildlife-thing in my garden.

    Not Frost Free
    I have wrote the following review for the bird bath, having read the latest review I feel I need to share it again for Chris request a refund. The description specifies Frost Resistant therefore one presumes it stays outside. I feel RSPB need to update their description.

    My daughter bought the bird bath for Father's day 2012 along with the pedestal stand.

    It is very attractive but no birds have used it yet!!

    We had to silicone the bowl to the pedestal to ensure it did not fall off.
    The negative side it is not Frost Resistant as outlined. The bowl cracked due to frost.

    The positive was the good customer service a replacement was sent this January 2013. Thank you

    What is a shame is that I will now keep the bird bath inside over the winter months and replace it with a resin one. If we had known we would not have purchased this bird bath and stand and bought a resin one instead as it was expensive.

    I hope the birds come to it this year, if not then I will fill it with bird seed.

    Waste of money
    Delighted with this when it arrived but after frost (not even severe) it has cracked and it now totally useless. Absolute waste of money

    expensive mistake
    The bath and stand look nice. Like the second reviewer, we stabilised it with silicon. The bath broke into pieces in one of the first frosts of the year: it is beyond repair. I had rung the RSPB to ask whether it was frost proof - I understand that this is not the same as frost resistant - and was given an inconclusive answer. We feel that it was an expensive mistake.

    Love it
    I think the negative reviewer must have got a bad batch, cause mine sits firms on top of the stand and i haven't had any problems with it.

    Love my bird bath and is so much better than those out there.

    Beautiful
    I got this product for Christmas last year top and base, whilst I agree with the last reviewer it only rests on the top we put a smeer of silicon around the top and joined the two together and it's very solid so don't let it put you off. It is a beautiful product made only better by the jay I photographed drinking from it.

    Echoes bird bath & stand - not good value!
    I have just purchased this item and am disappointed to find that the bath does not sit on the stand safely, I have had to rest it against a fence in order to keep it securely situated. Also it is very poor value for the money. One final point is they recommend that you soak the stuck on labels in warm water to remove them, believe me this does not work, I had to use proper label remover in order to clean the residue from the item. All in all, would I recommend this product to a friend? Definitely not!!
