Walking around Rickmansworth Aquadrome, its amazing to find the same breed of birds in the summer, autumn and this severe winter getting on with life as normal. Many people brought their children along together with bread and seeds for the birds. Now although we associate bread cut into little bits for ducks for pigeons etc, this is not really good for them. As they eat the bread followed by water it bloats their stomach. If you are going to feed them, please bring them wild bird seeds.
Just look at their webbed feet, no matter what nature throws these are pure survivors.
