Please don`t feed bread to the birds

There have been reports of injured birds in Ropner Park

recently

Canada Goose in Ropner Park showing Angel Wing

Tony, the park keeper is not aware of anything unusual and if he sees any injured wildlife he calls in the RSPCA.

We believe that the problem is “Angel Wing” in which the upper feathers of the birds are deformed, but when these feathers fall out, the next ones can be  healthy.

There is considerable evidence that this problem is caused by feeding the birds bread…..

PLEASE DON`T       Bird seed is on sale in the cafe for only 20p.
