Just come across a young Great Tit which drowned in a bucket of water.
I'd left a black 2 gallon bucket in a tucked away corner in the garden. We had some welcome rain over a couple of days but I'd completely forgotten the bucket. Just a few inches in the bottom but obviously enough to entice.
Despite ponds and bird baths and saucers of water the GTit presumably decided to try to get a drink from the bucket, fell in and couldn't get out again.
I was really Tee'd off with myself as it could have easily been avoided..
Just a word of warning to others - any containers ( other than the "official" ones ) left around the garden which will hold water are not to be recommended.
I'll certainly be more careful in future
