Message from Foreshore Officer

The Foreshore Officer asks that people feeding swans in the Harbour area please do not feed dry bread, but instead throw it into the water for swans to feed there.
Some swans have been found with a blockage in neck, due to bolting down dry bread.
Further to this, their natural food is weed they find at low tide from river, so best is no bread at all!
RSPB also support this message.
A recent news item found ducks like kale, in fact our swans stay overnight in fields in the Arun valley, so may well like kale. let us know if you try this out.
