The water we put out for birds seems to dry up daily. Partly because they are splashing around in it as well as drinking it.

However, I have just seen this tweet and read the information via the link. It seems hedgehogs are having a tough time during this hot spell. Please consider putting a bowl of water out for them each night, too.

From The Ark Wildlife Team:

Hedgehog carers across the country are reporting dehydrated hedgehogs since the heatwave began. Please be thoughtful and put a low sided bowl of water out every night during dry spells and share this advice with as many friends as you can.
Many thanks - The Ark Wildlife Team
