Fun feeding the birds......................................................... at Grange over Sands

We went down to the Ornamental Gardens most mornings during our break at Grange over Sands.
This is a short clip of us feeding the birds.
Bar-headed and Snow Geese plus plenty of noisy/greedy Black-headed Gulls.


The geese followed us around as if we were the Pied Piper... it was fun feeding them.
On this particular morning we ran out of bread so crossed the road to the bakers to get some more...
 ...to our surprise they actually did "duck bread" or rather bread past it's sell by date.
All we had to do was donate some cash to charity... they gave us loads.

This video was captured using my little old (2007) Casio pocket camera... it still does a good job.
Warning... don't have your volume turned up too loud... they are rather noisy.

It is a grand pond. I often wonder what Grange was like when they built the promenade. I enjoy the salt marsh now but it is a mucky job negotiating it.

The Bar Headed Geese are really nice.

That one scene, Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds came to mind.

The bakers obviously know which side their bread is buttered Andrew.
Those gulls are a noisy lot.

Great video, Andrew! What lucky ducks and geese to live across the road from a bakery.
