Reminder: Wild Birds in Wicksteed Park

As we are approaching the winter season, you may see our wild birds wandering the fields and areas around the lake more often.

When visiting the park and walking around the lake, it is important that you do not disturb any of the ducks, swans, and geese you may see.

Please do not approach, touch, or pick up any of the birds you come across.

As these are wild birds approaching, touching, or attempting to pick them up may cause them unnecessary stress and make them act in defence.

If you do spot a wild bird that looks unwell or you are concerned about, please approach a member of the Wicksteed Park team or report it to RSPB.

Please also remember to keep your dogs on their leads when walking around the park, particularly in areas where our wild birds are.
