If you live in an area which doesn’t have much fresh water around, particularly in urban cities, try and put out fresh water for the wildlife such as the birds and foxes. Fill it up in the evening too.
When it is very dry and hot, a lot of our wildlife find it hard to find water.
Put some waterbowls outside for them, and if you can make a mini pond for the them, even better. The butterflies will also appreciate a bit of fruit.
UPDATE: I have had dunnocks, magpies and pigeons drinking from my waterbowl.
