Not sure I would use the term Moron, applied to the mindless vandals. Cant they get their PlayStation, TV & stereo treated the same way?
Goosander racing! I like it - bet your tenner was on No6 - that one at the back!

Can we put a sign up saying this area is monitored 24hrs a day by CCTV.........but, they probably can't read..

I'm sorry all your hard work has been wrecked. I'm sure you won't give up on it.
I was going to say the same thing as Barry about the young Goosanders - looks like school sports day on the river!
The grass is Foxtail. There are larger farmers' versions called Timothy grass, which turn up in the wild.

I agree with your sentiment regarding not giving up. I have witnessed the pleasure the feeding area brings to so many people, myself included. When my mate Paul introduced me to CB I was so impressed with the fantastic effort made by the group in creating such a fantastic facility that I was motivated to join. It would be a shame to allow this event to spoil the pleasure of so many. I hope I can help lend a hand repairing the damage.

The grass is actually a Timothy, similar to meadow foxtail but flowers later in the year.
