Beautiful places to feed the ducks in Liverpool

You don’t need to spend a fortune on a family day out with the kids and sometimes the simplest outings like a trip to the park to feed the ducks can be the best.

There’s no need to worry about long queues or spending a fortune and no matter what the weather you’re guaranteed to have a fun time.

If the sun is shining why not pack up a picnic blanket and bring a few butties for a snack and even if the weather is looking a bit gloomy - it’s the perfect excuse to don your wellies and waterproofs but look out for the muddy puddles.

What to feed ducks
You should feed the ducks with corn (canned, frozen or fresh), duck pellets, lettuce or other greens, frozen peas (defrosted), oats (rolled or instant) or bird seed as these are much better for the environment and the ducks’ digestion. The same applies for most wild birds including geese and swans.

Should you ever feed ducks bread?
No. It’s bad for the environment and bad for birds’ digestion. It can cause ducks to gain too much weight making it difficult for them to fly. The same applies for other carbohydrates such as crisps, crackers, cereal and popcorn. Think of it as the equivalent of junk food for wild birds!
