During this very hot and dry spell it is not only humans who are suffering Birds and hedgehogs, among other wildlife, are having great difficulty in finding food, and more particularly water. Most of us are ensuring that there is a suitable water supply for the birds but please consider placing a shallow dish each evening for the hedgehogs. The volunteers who look after the Memorial Garden (which is leased by Dawlish Town Council) have placed a water dish there on the assumption that there may be hedgehogs there too.
Please remember if water containers for both birds and hedgehogs are put out they do need cleaning and replenishing each day.
Please pass this message on so that we can all help our local wildlife in some small way.
