I had a fairly big pond dug about a year ago and took a decision not to introduce anything. Its been difficult, but i have stuck to that except for some native flag irises that i had in the garden anyway. For a year lots of flies, beetles, birds, water boatmen, pond skaters, little beetles. etc.
TODAY for the first time i have seen
taddys but only 2
an underwater beetle, but about an inch big!
And.....gosh... A newt!
Its the small things in life i suppose, but i just couldn't be more excited.
It is exciting isn't it We've got a new pond and we were so excited when the frogs and newts moved in
That's brilliant a1154 (strange name but there we are...). Great when that happens
