The Wildlife of Barclay Park Information Board
This photo shows the information board which is at the southern end of the lake in Barclay Park. It has the following wording:

THE WILDLIFE OF BARCLAY PARK

Robert Barclay had the lake constructed in 1894-5, using local labour to provide much needed work for the man of Hoddesdon. The lake is fed from Spital Brook which runs through the park. The brook's name comes from the medieval hospital which stood close to where the brook crosses the A1170. Spital Brook contains environmentally important and protected species, including stone loach and freshwater mussel.

DID YOU KNOW?
Feeding bread can cause:
Poor Nutrition
Spread of disease
Pollution
Overcrowding
Delayed migration
Unnatural behaviour
Problems with pests and vermin.

Many people enjoy feeding waterfowl but the effects of this seemingly generous
act can be harmful so please use one of these healthier alternatives:
Grapes cut in half
Corn, barley, oats, grain
Birdseed
Fresh or defrosted peas
Duck feed pellets

This will encourage wildfowl to forage naturally and breed successfully.
KEEP WILDLIFE WILD
