I've been reading about the Solar Sipper Bird Bath and plan to buy one of these when I get chance/money. I have 4 cats and a few visiting from neighbours but they prefer chasing the squirrels to the birds. They do bring me mice and shrews but usually these 'presents' are uninjured and I release them in to the wildlife section of my garden. I also have at least one hedgehog who pops up for meals occasionally (and is studiously ignored by the cats). I have built an insect house in the wildlife section and it seems popular. I hope to get some native fruit trees, etc. for the birds too but I have very limited money, time and strength unfortunately. I did contemplate a pond for frogs but having visited a friend whose cat brings frogs in I changed my mind. Not a good combination.
