The Park Lake is only two feet deep at its deepest point. It's home to Ducks and countless Canada Geese. People feed them daily on a diet of stale bread and grain. This doesn't stay inside the birds for very long and they void the remains approximately three times an hour. I doesn't take much imagination to guess what the green soup actually is. As soon as the temperature soars,the oxygen levels decrease. The fish start spawning and they get stressed as they try to compete for a mate. The two events together are a recipe for disaster as the dead and dying fish testify.
The association of Wirral Angling clubs (A.W.A.C.) control the fishing on the lake, so I would imagine it would be up to them to try and get some oxygenating equipment there ASAP. Failing that, the Environment Agency should be informed.
This has been an ongoing problem, every year that we have hot weather. As an angler, I would rather see the fish removed to a suitable habitat than watch them die year after year.
Let's face reality, people will never stop feeding the ducks, and why should they? but by offering free food to ducks, they only encourage the Canada Geese to stay. Most of the Geese have never even seen Canada!
