Just a safety warning – we have had a large number of ducks die on the lake.
It is believed to be something that is only affecting the birds (not the fish) that is killing them. Just as a precaution – please don’t feed the ducks/geese or go near them.
The Environment Agency have been out and told the anglers not to do any fishing: the lake has been closed to anglers. The Environmental Health people are coming out this morning. It might be advisable to keep dogs on a lead in case they go in the lake to cool off, or find a dead duck. The Angling Club are to be congratulated on noticing the problem and taking immediate action. Well done to them. We’ll keep you posted.
