What unites us in this hot weather??

A long cool drink of the fresh stuff, water that is!

It’s not just us humans that feel the heat; birds, mammals, plants and insects all need access to water. To help them through these hot spells, how about filling a dish or upturned bin lid with water and place it in a well positioned spot outside? Remember to to clean and refresh the water regularly to prevent the build-up of algae and bacteria.

Changing the water will also stop Mosquitoes breeding, use the old water to revive a pot plant or even a thirsty street tree?

Here’s some pretty pictures of creatures you’d be helping. All taken in our beautiful hot city.
