These are wild birds, please don't give them human names
OK, Would Wild bird Penny and Wild Duke suit you ?... or maybe you should get a life.
Animals in Zoos have names and they are still wild animals. So what's the difference. A pretty petty remark !
@ dr-grigorNo it's a poignant remark. The wild water birds on the river have been tamed and some given names. They no longer feed naturally.Guidance by various organisations suggests that such birds should only be fed in severe winter conditions, not all the year roundThere has been an attempt to land grab the area and make it some some of nature reserve thankfully rejected. In effect it's almost like a zoo. There are unnatural numbers of ducks that leads to all sorts of issues for the poor birds, everything from attracting a large amount of predators to the females wandering far from the river to try and find suitable nesting sitesIt's a contentious issue that unfortunately divides our community
And there I think we will leave it folks. We've had comment on ducks and swans subject many times before and no need to do it again.
