Product description

This high-fired glazed bird bath is both wonderfully ornamental while being fully functional. Durable and sturdy, it features a graduated ripple step design to allow birds to get a secure footing when drinking and bathing.

A gorgeous addition to any garden or outdoor space, the Echoes bird bath is made from frost-resistant, glazed terracotta in a lovely mottled green hue.

It features an iconic quote from William Blake's poem ''Auguries of Innocence'', with the following words inscribed around the edge of the bath: ''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.''

The Echoes bird bath makes a wonderful gift for both bird and literature lovers looking to add something special to their outdoor space.

advice

While this bird bath is frost resistant, it is not frostproof. It may be worth protecting it from severe icy 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.

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

I've had one for many years
I've had one of these bird baths for over ten years. It's survived numerous hard frosts, down to at least minus 10 one year. It's put up with me getting the ice out with a kettle of boiling water. This year I thought maybe boiling water a bad idea so had the not so great idea of tapping it against the flagstone and knocked a bit off. Aaargh, silly me. Reading the other reviews it seems like it's pot luck whether you get a tough one like I did or a delicate, frost destroyable one.... I've just ordered a replacement, crossing my fingers!

Lovely but does not attach securely to pedestal
I bought this as a direct replacement for a previous version of the same product, which smashed through my own error. I already have a pedestal, purchased separately with the previous birdbath.

The bowl is just as lovely as the last one was. However, my previous version had a circular ridge on the base, allowing it to fit securely on the pedestal. This ridge has been removed from this version, so it has a simple dished base and does not intersect with the pedestal in any way. I have seen it slide around and tilt when larger birds land on it, and I am not confident it will last as long as the old one.

I can probably fix this with a little DIY, however it seems like putting this ridge back on the base is a simple change that the manufacturer could make, which would make this product much more useful on a pedestal.

RSPB response

Thank you for your feedback- we have gone back to our supplier with this information. If you wish to, you can use a silicone adhesive to securely fix the stem to the bowl.

Shatters at first frost. Waste of money.
Looks lovely but won't withstand even a mild frost.
