We have a similar large cattle trough (no cattle now) which is about 5ft
diameter.  We placed a large old tree root, knobbly, which floats and
wired it securely to the side of the trough through holes already
supplied. This provides safe access down rough 'paths' into the water,
with shallow puddles forming within the root due to its knobbly nature.
It is proving suitable for small and large birds including Willie
Wagtail, Restless Flycatcher, Magpie-Lark, Eastern and Crimson Rosellas,
Little Wattlebirds, Magpies and Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos.
Ours has a concealed float but maybe the item used could be wired in a
position to save the float from possible destruction from the errant
Good luck
