Default How to collect clean rainwater?

The message
from "dave @ stejonda" contains these words:

In message , Jo
How can I collect rainwater without it going stagnant? My waterbutt always
goes green (the water, not the butt!) and has all sorts of nasty insects
living in it, not nice...!

Does it need to be out of the sun / lidded?

Exactly - get a close-fitting lid.

Which will also prevent mice and birds falling in and drowning.
