Reports www.kentnews.co.uk.

The RSPB is urging people in Kent to make damp mud available for birds that desperately need it to make their nests for the breeding season.

After the driest April on record, and with more dry weather forecast, birds like House Martins and Swallows are struggling to find enough sticky mud for their nests.

The wildlife charity suggests putting wet mud in a shallow container like a dustbin lid, or creating damp mud at the edges of borders and ponds or in bare patches of grass.
