Heron visits new pond
Thursday 27th March 2003 in the garden diary...
I came home from work today and as I entered the garden, some movement caught my eye at the new pond. I looked up to see a grey heron leaving the side of the pond. There were no sign of the frogs where had been actively spawning in there. I guess that they moved to deeper water or under stones etc when it arrived. My neighbour first alerted us to the heron's interest in the pond about a week ago she phoned us before the kids had gone to school to say that a heron was at the pond-side. We were all rewarded with a good view of the heron. There was no sign of any loss of frogs after that visit and the two goldfish which we have there were still to be seen.
