Ely's duck-feeding debate seems to have made the national media. On The Telegraph website, it compares Ely's anti-duck regime to the liberal duck-feeding situation in Cambridge.
The story quotes Guy Belcher, a nature conservation officer at Cambridge City Council: "We don't have any rules like this. We do have lots of ducks in areas like Jesus Green but we do not consider them to be an issue or health hazard. Mind you we do not have any Muscovy ducks. We encourage people to feed the ducks and birds in our open spaces and it's generally a fun activity for families."
