The birds in Wanstead are so lucky, every day is a fabulous smorgasbord of tasty morsels from which to choose. On Monday morning the spread was particularly diverse. Let me show a sample stretch of pond margin - all of this was probably in area no more than 20m x 20m adjacent to the car park at Alexandra Lake. It is wonderful to be able to connect with nature like this, to be able to drive to the lake and chuck all your food waste out of your car window.
Come on Wanstead residents, sort yourselves out! It is completely disgusting. This is not kindness, it is sloth - it is littering, it is fouling, it is completely unacceptable. The rat population is out of control and the birds are going to get ill. Anyone who does this should get fined.
|Lentils. Birds love lentils.|
|Brown bread. Mmmmmm.|
|Seed. Better, but still. Oh, and litter.|
|Chapatis and whole slices of brown bread. Excellent for birds.|
|Rice. Half in the water, half out. Lovely.|
|Vegetable peelings and rotten bananas. Just the ticket.|
