Leaves in pond!
I put a pond in my garden last year and over the last few months have noticed quite a few leaves in there floating about (there isn't a tree overhead but there are a few nearby). I scooped some out today and also tried scooping some out from the bottom of the pond. Looks like there is a thick carpet of them at the bottom too. I also dredged up a couple of frogs and newts too (they were fine and hopped/crawled back into the water). Thing is, I am conscious of getting rid of as many leaves from the pond as I can as it turns the water bad - but I also don't want to disturb/scare off the amphibians that have made my pond their home. Should I continue to remove the leaves or just leave it? (no pun intended with my last line!)
