Ducks on lake shore eating seed

With many people and children walking out and about, in parks, by the canal or river, it’s always lovely to see children feeding the ducks with stale bread.  However, ducks need a varied diet to be healthy and bread doesn’t hold much nutritional value for ducks. It fills the duck’s stomach so that they don’t forage for food that they would normally eat, which can lead to malnutrition. Uneaten soggy bread can cause a build-up of bad nutrients, which can lead to more algae growing around the water. This, in turn, can attracts pest such as rats and can be harmful to dogs that drink from the lake.   So if you want to feed the ducks, they also love the following foods:-

Sweetcorn – Frozen or Fresh

Lettuce – Rocket, kale and Iceburg

Peas – Frozen or Fresh

Oats – Flapjack, rolled oats or instant porridge

Seeds – Bird seeds or human seeds and nuts

Rice – Cooked or uncooked
