Feed the swans: low water levels in park leaves birds hungry

With low water levels in Wanstead Park’s Ornamental Water, the resident swan family are in need of help.

“With less water, the swans are restricted in their ability to access the wider lake, and therefore food. We are asking people to take a detour to the lake to feed them. The cygnets will need energy to learn to fly. Seeded brown bread, spinach, kale and lettuce are all welcome. Thank you to all those who have already been supporting them,” said Tracey Adebowale-Jones, who is part of a volunteer network monitoring local swans.
