Lucy Taylor, manager of Vine House Farm, has this advice on the best way to feed the ducks and keep them healthy.

She said: “In small doses, bread isn’t harmful to waterfowl so don’t feel too guilty if you’ve ever fed the ducks your stale bread leftovers. However, in large doses, bread can cause developmental problems and can often fill them up, meaning they don’t eat any other nutritious foods. Therefore, if every well-meaning person is feeding your local ducks with bread, it quickly becomes a problem.

"Be sure to throw food in at the water’s edge, supervising children the whole time. Throwing food into the water ensures that ducks don’t make themselves vulnerable to predators on land.”

Best foods for ducks include bird food, sweetcorn and peas, salad leaves or oats.
