Shallow dishes of water for skinks etc. on the ground are also a good idea for smaller creatures.

See Karen Pearon's posting on this topic last November (now being followed up by our Council!).

So hanging/suspended water bowls are great - see John Gamblin's latest - but not the only water supply needed.

Psssssst Psssssst Well MIN if you follow my lead then I can vouch for it, HSWB's not only being good for birds, but to have them hanging or suspended it's great for humans too. Nothing better then to have, like mine, at human forehead height.

No wonder none of my lovely pink/grey ladies want to shower with me eh?


And fine mist showers also save bird lives in extreme heat conditions. If possible create some shade? then apply fine COOLED water spray to thee affected bird. NOT A GARDEN HOSE. This has worked on several occasions of 38C plus heat for me.
