Reminder, it is really hot outside and our small animal friends do not
have access to water like we do. So help them out and put out a bowl
full of fresh water in your yard, on your balcony, or on your window
still and do a small creature a good turn by keeping them alive and
hydrated. Added bonus: doing this, you will get to see what comes for
the water like your own wild nature TV show but in real life and outside
We have three little ponds and it's fun watching which birds creep through the vegetation to get to the edge of one of them and sip at the water. Strangely enough it isn't during this waether that it happens so much. It is during winter that the Fieldfares, Redwings and Blackbirds do it. But in this weather the Blackbirds sometimes have a bath in the little water feature on the patio. After they have done so the water is spread all over the place and it looks as though a Polar Bear had been splashing about.

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
