Do you leave water for the birds?

With the hot weather that’s been forecast, we’re making sure to keep the bird bath topped up. Not only do the birds enjoy a cooling bath, but they also can drink from it.

For the smaller birds, we also have a water-filled plant saucer with a pebble in – the pebble helps to stop the pigeons from tipping it over, but also means the very small birds can get some shallower water to bathe in.

It’s not just the birds that use the bath though, I’ve seen a fox come into the garden at night and take advantage of some drinking water! We also have had numerous visits from a badger (we haven’t spotted it recently, but we have seen the ‘deposits’ that it’s left behind), and I’m guessing that the badger is also making the most of the water.
