Maiden Erlegh Nature Reserve


Duck feeding platform and water bird identification board



One of the most popular activities with visitors to the reserve is feeding the ducks and other waterfowl that live on the lake. In order to make this a safe experience and to enable vistors to get closer to the birds, we have constructed this feeding platform.

To enhance your visit, Thames Water have kindly sponsored an interpretation board that enables you to identify the birds that make the lake their home.

If possible, please feed the birds with brown bread rather than white.
