IT is lockdown No.6 and one year since Hastings-based photographer Celia Furt warned against feeding junk food to birds.
Furt was out with her camera again last week to show that not much has changed.
“The photos tell the same story as last year: people during lockdown feeding junk food to the pelicans and seagulls,” she said.
“However, the difference is that last year the signs weren’t up as the fishing pier at Hastings was in the middle of being rebuilt and was closed off to the public.
“Despite the signs, people are careless, they are still feeding human food to the birds.
“I know that it feels like fun raising such a feeding frenzy among the birds but, at the end of the day, people are just poisoning them. Birds cannot digest bread, fries, pizza and whatever else people are feeding them.
“The food birds cannot digest gets stuck in their throats and crops, and they die a terrible death.
“Birds can literally fall from the sky.”
