Visit us Things to do Feed the ducks Did you know that bread is bad for ducks? That's why we provide duck food at the Visitor Centre & Gift shop in Ferry Meadows. Duck food is available for free, however a donation towards the cost of purchasing more food is very much appreciated. There is also a duck feeding platform just in front of the Otter Play Area on the edge of Overton Lake. By feeding the birds over the water, it keeps the paths clean and the birds are safe on the water. For more information, you can pick up a duck feeding leaflet in the Visitor Centre.
