Birds in the bath

 One of the presents from my recent birthday was a bird bath. It needs a proper place to sit but for now it's on the patio table.
I expected to have to wait quite a while before any birds would approach it
but after a lot of noises in the bushes today - "You go first","No, you go" -
this sparrow investigated it
and then went back to fetch a friend!

    1. They always look like they're having such fun splashing about. Give them a large plant pot saucer on the ground - it may not look as pretty but the birds won't care. I used to use them till the dog started drinking the muddy water :(
