Feeding Ducks

Cute alert!

These young, fluffy moorhen can be seen around the pond at Scone Park. They are very used to people so they come right up to you on the path.

One of your first experiences of feeding birds may have been as a child throwing some bread to the ducks and swans at your local pond or nearby river. Although feeding bread to ducks may seem like a kind thing to do and a great way of getting rid of stale bread, it can actually be potentially dangerous for them.

Instead, feed ducks and other pond dwelling birds oats, sweetcorn, any bird seed mixes and grapes!pond 2
