Shocking weather here, I'm itching to tidy the garden but afraid a tree might blow over. Wouldn't it be nice if the wind blew all the leaves into a nice pile in the corner ... hmmm
The wind blows all my leaves to one place Laura, the pond
My parents had similar problem with the pond, but now they put a net over it, also to stop the herons too
It would have to be a big net
More than I could handle.
Never sure about keeping the herons out, they're wildlife as well, but they've seriously reduced the newt population
I have a pet newt, His name is tiny, because he is my newt! hehe
The old jokes are the best jokes
I hope you haven't Philippa. We had newts and occasional heron for years but this year the heron was a regular visitor
GCNs have low priority compared to big business Philippa.
Local gravel extraction may result in our water table being lowered. This could result in no ponds for us and neighbours. Surveys were done and GCNs were noted but permission was given for the gravel extraction
