Looking to create a pond

Looking to create a small (5' kidney+ side shoot for escapes) wildlife pond and just wondering if anyone had advice on WHEN to do it?  Get cracking now or leave until Spring?

    Get cracking as soon as you can then you can get it settled and planted in time for next season.

    plus if it rains all winter, it will fill up by itself.

  • Thanks folks, Nutcutlet echoed my own thoughts but other half reckoned better to leave until next year to start.

    First fill will be from water butts - no problem refilling them in Scotland!

    Time to look out the spade methinks
