Cloudy Water


At the Bay Pond in Godstone the notice advises the public to desist from feeding the ducks, geese and fish due to the adverse environmental consequences of this.

The feeding of the wildlife in this pond had been done by adults and children in Godstone for generations but the Nature body that is responsible for managing the reserve had to take matters in hand. Apparently a few local noses were put out of joint by this, hence the protracted explanation on the sign. A “pea soup” effect on the water, caused by overfeeding and bread, is mentioned. On this day there were only clouds in the water.
