I was in the garden earlier pulling a few weeds out. A very young ?blackbird was watching. It seemed to be asking for something? Plenty of small flies etc so it wasn't that I filled a shallow dish with water from the watering can and watched. Poor little thing had such a long drink! I have now filled a few shallow trays with water. No sun, no rain. Not much water around for the wild animals that come into our gardens.
Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.
I’m feeling sad this year as we have lots of magpies and crows dropping into our garden. All the little birds have disappeared. We stopped putting out bird food as we thought it was bringing the others to prey on the little ones.
Well done Trisha - I have dishes out, plus a birdbath that I freshen up each night and now a pond for them and lovely to see the birds using these. I have also saved a few bees this year by giving sugary water on a spoon!
