Bird splashing water in a bird bath

The UK is currently in the middle of a heatwave. In the past week, each of the home nations have seen their hottest day of the year so far, and the Met Office issued its first ever Amber Extreme Heat Warning.

This may seem like cause for celebration, but remember, hot weather can be dangerous - so if you are planning to take advantage of the sunshine, be sure to grab a sun hat and slap on some sun cream before you head to the beach.

And don't forget about the importance of staying hydrated. This applies to birds as well as humans!


Birds needs water too!

When you leave the house on a hot summer day, it's a good idea to take a bottle of water with you so that you don't become dehydrated.

But we humans aren't the only ones at risk of dehydration during this time of year. Just like you, the birds in your garden need water to survive - so it's important to leave some out for them, especially during a heatwave.

If you're not sure how to put out water for birds to drink and bathe in, read our Bird Bathing Guide or contact the Really Wild Bird Food team for expert advice. We're more than happy to answer any questions you have about your garden birds and how to look after them on hot days!
