Should I supply drinking water for my garden birds?
It’s good to provide a regular supply of clean water for birds to drink and bathe in.
Water is particularly important during the winter when natural supplies may be frozen, and in dry weather. Shallow containers, like dustbin lids or plant saucers, work well, but make sure you clean them regularly to prevent diseases from spreading.
You can try build your own by following these instructions - Make Your Own Bird Bath (PDF).
