Trust Feeding Facts



Viewers might like to know a few facts about the Trust feeding regime on the riverside. Trust membership pays for the feeding and care of the River Nairn water birds. It has been remarked to me often that these must be the best cared for birds in Scotland, I don't argue with that ! 


The Trust Provides approx 3.5 tons of specialised and mixed grain a year to feed around 180 birds. This might seem a lot, but in fact is only around 2 ounces or 56 grams a day per bird.


The quality of the feeding is reflected in the good health and condition of the birds, which we all enjoy seeing on our river. A couple of short clips below, showing Penny and the ducklings feeding today.
