King of the Grove outlaws feeding bread to the birds

One of the notices placed up around the Grove.

His Majesty King Calum I of the Grove has issued a decree forbidding the feeding of bread to wildfowl.

The Kingdom of the Grove, through which part of the River Wandle runs through, is home to many ducks, geese, moorhens and swans, and many visitors to the Grove often feed the birds.

Despite there already being signs up warning visitors that feeding bread to wildfowl is bad for their health, these warnings are often ignored. King Calum has therefore banned the practice outright.

Copies of the King’s decree have been placed up around the Grove.

Information on the damage to birds’ health and to the ecosystem that can be caused by feeding bread to wildfowl can be found at this Guardian article and this page on the British Bird Lovers website.
