Looking after your garden wildlife in August
Water, Water Everywhere
Water is often much needed in the dry days of August. So fill up your bird bath or just pop a plastic bowl of water out. For the birds make sure it is somewhere high up so they can spot predators. For hedgehogs and other ground animals pop a little saucer of water out and keep topped up.
You might feel your garden is a bit quiet this month. That is because the birds are sleepy! Many are moulting - an annual shedding of their feathers to get them ready for winter months.
