Default Concrete Bird Bath Cracked

We have a toadstool style concrete bird bath and the bowl is cracked. I
was expecting it to shatter this winter but it has survived. Any
suggestions on how to seal it?

Had a similar problem and used CT1 filler, did the trick for me. Works
on damp surfaces and dries rock hard and waterporoof.

I used superglue to mend a fairly large fancy plant-pot which we found
had a hairline crack. It has withstood many hard winters. I don't know
if it helped that it was unused when I fixed it. [You might need a fair
quantity of superglue, so a trip to a Pound Shop to buy a multi-pack
might be required.]
