There was an unfortunate incident during a hot spell in 2007 when a young bird was so eager to drink that it fell into the fountain and was drowned. John Gibling, a volunteer, made this leaf shaped lead bird bath for the top of the rockworks in the hope of preventing other such accidents.
Bird nesting boxes have been provided in the garden too, and many birds live there. The dawn chorus has been much enjoyed by the brave souls who listen to it at 4 a.m on a summer morning!
