While in Leamington Spa, England, I went for a walk in Jephson Gardens and came across a man feeding ducks and swans with bread. He had about five slices of bread and he threw bits of it towards them. Needless to say the swans fought a little over it, but they seemed to enjoy it.
"Hello, I'm a Scotsman!", said the man... "I enjoy feeding swans. Take a slice of bread and throw it in them on the water. It's fun!".
There were loads of ducks around us and they looked quite hungry.
What a happy swan patiently waiting for a treat!
I've heard that it is bad to feed ducks bread, but one of my earliest memories as a child was feeding the ducks at our local pond, and that helped formed my love for wildlife.
What about you?
My lovelies, hope you have a wonderful weekend! xx
