Couldn't find that one on Amazon but this one's under 6 quid. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Botanico-Lets-Grow-Rain-Gauge/dp/B003WQA4L4/ref=pd_cp_lp_2
The one I've been using I got for 2 quid from a garden centre. But it's parallel sided with a small catchment area. I increased it with a funnel and re-calibrated. But I prefer a conical one.

Sorry, no banner - weather station out of action. Hoping to be up and running with a new home-made one soon.
