During the heatwave, I’ve been leaving a small dish of water out on the patio at the end of the garden. The original intention for this was in case the hedgehog was still around, but I’ve been amazed by the range of wildlife it attracts.
The baby birds seem to be particular fans of it, I think some of them haven’t plucked up the courage to use the bird bath yet.
And of course there’s always that special someone who wants their own, personal tub!
I compiled this footage last weekend over Friday night and Saturday morning, which gives a taste of the visitors we’re getting.
If you possibly can during the heat, have a water source (however small) available for visitors. Your garden wildlife will love you for it!
