The new Coniston Bird Bath is made with environmentally-friendly material called Clayplas+. This combines 30% recycled plastic content with 70% clay in composite form to give a light weight durable finish which mimics an aged stone finish. The material comes with a 10 year guarantee.
The bird bath comes as standard with a low push-fit base. The bird bath stands to a height of 180mm with its short stem. The Coniston has scrollwork decoration around the bird bath edge on a matt background and in contrast to the water bowl which is finished with a glossy surface.
Extra pebbles (not included) may be put in the water bowl for decoration and to allow small birds to perch to drink.
If so desired a separate tall column may be purchased to raise the bird bath further off the ground. This takes the height up to 620mm with the tall stem. To fit the tall stem, remove the short base and attached the tall stem to the underside of the bowl with a twist fit.

Buglife is the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates. We’re actively working to save Britain’s rarest little animals, everything from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice and jumping spiders to jellyfish.
There are more than 40,000 invertebrate species in the UK, and many of these are under threat as never before.
Invertebrates are vitally important to a healthy planet – humans and other life forms could not survive without them. The food we eat, the fish we catch, the birds we see, the flowers we smell and the hum of life we hear, simply would not exist without bugs. Invertebrates underpin life on earth and without them the world’s ecosystems would collapse.
Invertebrates are facing an extinction crisis
Today, thousands of invertebrate species are declining and many are heading towards extinction. Worldwide 150,000 species could be gone by 2050 if we do nothing.
Each invertebrate species plays a unique and important role in the web of life, but once lost, they cannot be replaced. Many invertebrates have incredible life stories yet to be told, and we literally don’t know what we are on the brink of losing.
Buglife’s aim is to halt the extinction of invertebrate species and to achieve sustainable populations of invertebrates.
We are working hard to achieve this through:
- Promoting the environmental importance of invertebrates and raising awareness about the challenges to their survival.
- Assisting in the development of legislation and policy that will ensure the conservation of invertebrates.
- Developing and disseminating knowledge about how to conserve invertebrates.
- Encouraging and supporting invertebrate conservation initiatives by other organisations in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
- Undertaking practical conservation projects that will contribute to achieving our aim.
