Water is vital for wildlife to thrive, but it isn't just for drinking.
Amphibians like newts, frogs 🐸 and toads use water as shelter and breeding grounds. Butterflies 🦋 get valuable minerals and salts from slightly muddy water, and birds 🐦 use water to bathe and remove parasites.
Having a pond in your garden is one of the best things you can do to help wildlife. It can be any size depending on the space you have available. Even small sink size ponds are valuable. Below are some links on how to build your own 💚
So whether you are providing a bee water station, a bird bath, a hedgehog bowl, a bog or a pond, be sure to provide water for wildlife, especially in this hot weather.
