Solar bird bath

I have several bird baths in my garden and get a lot of pleasure watching my feathered friends enjoying them. I was considering the idea of adding one of the small solar sprinklers that you can add to bird baths. Are these any good please? I would love to hear if you have one. Thank you.

    I bought one back in 2019 and it is still going strong. I have just checked and it is now unavailable from Amazon, but l'm sure there are others available. 
    One thing to bear in mind is that the vast majority of them come from China and that's something you may want to consider for various reasons  :)

    Beware if you have foxes as regular visitors. We do and have lost two fountains, which they seem to see as toys for their amusement. They survived a few playtimes but eventually were too damaged to work anymore. We suspect it was the cubs given the timing of the damage as the fountains were fine for a while and the adults regularly pass through most nights.
