Wildlife pond - slightly 'milky' water?

Hi,

Our frogspawn has hatched and they look fine. But unless it's a trick of the light, the pond water looks very slightly 'milky'. I remember this happening in other year and it coinciding with time I introduced an oxygenator, I assumed perhaps wrongly that it was down to the oxygenator. This year i've introduced it a couple of weeks ago, it didnt happen straight away, but has now. It maybe totally unrelated! Anyone any clue or am i worrying over nothing?

Thanks in advance image

    I think you are worrying over nothing. image

    If you have happy amphibians and your pond plants are thriving and it happened last year and you all survived then.....

    Thanks Pansyface. Sorry I wasn't clear, the first time it happened, i removed the oxygentators. I just wondered if anyone knew of any reason a pond would turn slightly 'milky'? It's always been crystal clear.

    It happens here too. I always put it down to the frogspawn and toadspawn breaking down.
