Beautiful creature...brave person!

what is it about bread that we shouldn't give it towater birds now? I remember Wigan Park where sliced loaves were chucked at the ducks by the hundreds.


Comment by Johnny on 2nd April 2016 at 10:09
Maureen
You're r's can't be that big not to show it!
Plain bread...I don't care much for this eatery!


Comment by Mick on 2nd April 2016 at 10:26
Is that French Bread its eating, if it is I will come on your next bird walk.


Comment by Roy on 2nd April 2016 at 12:39
Two reasons why bread, French or otherwise,Mick, is not the best thing for birds to eat.
Firstly, there is no nutritional value whatsoever for birds in bread and certain birds find it hard to digest.
Secondly, most definately NOT to be fed to garden birds when they are feeding their young, as it can choke them.
Plus, when thrown into your garden it can attract vermin.


Comment by Maureen on 2nd April 2016 at 13:04
Sorry about that Johnny..slapped hands are in order.


Comment by Vb on 2nd April 2016 at 15:32
Maureen it's Johnny being naughty not you! Read what he says out loud and you will see!
I'm sure he is only joking.


Comment by Anne on 2nd April 2016 at 17:04
Sorry Mick, Asda tiger bread.
The car park is tiny so normally parked round the corner, a pair of resident swans always came looking for treats.
Piccy taken when my cousins and I visited our only remaining aunt on her 99th birthday. Exactly one week later she died.


Comment by Mick on 2nd April 2016 at 17:10
Roy I know the new rules are dont feed bird bread, but Ive never seen a bird choking.
Another reason they cam up with is that it pollutes the water.

beautiful photo


Comment by Garry on 2nd April 2016 at 18:16
Bread is not good for birds.


Comment by Maureen on 2nd April 2016 at 18:58
Vb,I know he's only joking..my comment was tongue in cheek as well,he can be a devil..but I suppose you've gathered that lol.


Comment by beryl on 2nd April 2016 at 20:57
I love the animal photographs, especially the birds and those that swim - birds that is!!!!


Comment by Paula on 2nd April 2016 at 22:26
Apparently good things to take for the swans are frozen peas and sweetcorn, more nutritious (and obviously defrost by the time you feed the birds)


Comment by Mick on 3rd April 2016 at 00:03
They feed them old spuds at Martin Mere and they do them no harm.


Comment by Johnny on 3rd April 2016 at 07:51
Well spotted Vb!
As Maureen says Its all good banter and light-heartedness. Mind you, Mo and I have ruffled a few feathers in the past! :-)


Comment by Johnny on 3rd April 2016 at 09:41
Good point Paula..
Better than the swans swallowing lead shot from fishermen's lines!
B***dy nuisance they are!!


Comment by Roy on 3rd April 2016 at 11:58
MICK, bread chokes the young bird not the parent, AND they wont be feeding them OLD spuds at MM. If you do put bread out, there should just be enough for one day, after that it becomes mouldy and some moulds are toxic to birds, that's why they wont be feeding them OLD spuds at MM. Birds are seed eaters, if you feed them bread every day they become lazy, and go for the easy option.


Comment by Garry on 14th April 2016 at 20:43
Roy, some people are like that..Junk food outlets than cook a good decent meal.
