'My' fish pond has been somewhat neglected by the family while I have been away. That's ok, fishponds don't need much. I spent some time yesterday and today cleaning it out (putting in fresh water) and found that the fish had managed to breed. Hooray. That's only the second time in the last four years or so. But some of the big fish have gone awol. I have actually seen a grey heron in our totally suburban garden -about a year ago. The pond is now quite hidden under trees, but obviously something is still finding the fish.
