The pond is very overgrown, I think the hot weather has made the Elodea Crispa [oxygenating plant] and lilies go mad. Trying not to disturb the frogs, newts, fish, and other wildlife I cleared out buckets full, which is great for the compost heap and the fish have room to move about.
We lost a few fish to the heron some time ago so a trip to the garden centre to acquire a few new fish was called for. I am quite happy with common goldfish [ husband calls them Heron food!] so ten additions to the pond costing £11.50 came home with us.
