Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 2nd April, 2016)
I'm not really supposed to eat this...
I love that Anne..a beautiful photo.
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.
You're r's can't be that big not to show it!
Plain bread...I don't care much for this eatery!
Is that French Bread its eating, if it is I will come on your next bird walk.
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.
Sorry about that Johnny..slapped hands are in order.
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.
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.
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.
Bread is not good for birds.
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.
I love the animal photographs, especially the birds and those that swim - birds that is!!!!
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)
They feed them old spuds at Martin Mere and they do them no harm.
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! :-)
Good point Paula..
Better than the swans swallowing lead shot from fishermen's lines!
B***dy nuisance they are!!
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.
Roy, some people are like that..Junk food outlets than cook a good decent meal.
