Goodmorning Donna and thanks for your comments.The sign says - bread. In the past we have lost many ducks etc, through the bread that sinks and rots producing a poisinous algae.It's o.k. to feed corn which is sold in a local shop but sadly many still feed bread. Have a nice day.Eric

Fantastic pictures of everything, Eric (even the dreaded Bindweed). Cannot, possibly, choose any one as a fave, but the duckling and cygnets definitely have the "AWW" factor. The yellow flower on the Verbascum/Mullein is great, too. I often have probs with this colour. Was definitely not "board", and am glad that you posted that pic. Am always having to "inform" other visitors at local ponds of the dangers of feeding bread to little ducklings and cygnets.
