What you need:
Place to mix or a mixer (much easier!)
Mound up some dirt to about knee high.
Make a hole, birdbath size (whatever that is – up to you)
Make a dryish, firm mix of concrete and coat the hole with it about 20mm thick.
Allow to dry (about 3-4 days) then fill with water and watch the birdies.
An alternative way is to use a mould (an old large container). Turn it upside down and smear vegetable oil over it (stops concrete sticking). Cover with above mix and allow to dry.
A quick dip before lunch...
