Making a pond in a container

I would like to make a small wildlife pond in a container in my garden. Any ideas?

What sort of container would be best?

Site it in sun or shade?

Any other advice or tips would be great.

thank you.

    Apparently, even a washing up bowl filled with rain water will attract wildlife. I would go for a sunny area and try to have some foliage adjacent so creatures can hide. A way in (and out!) using stones or similar is essential. 

    I'm sure you will receive great ideas on here...
