After losing one of my goldfish apparently to a heron, I thought it was time to change the ‘safety net’ that we keep stretched over the pond. There was a tear near to the centre of the pond by where the fountain stood. This may have given a predator an opportunity to take a fish or two. All of the other fish have been accounted for bar the missing goldfish Muffin.
The new net is a much finer mesh than the original one giving a greater visibility to all the inhabitants of the pond.
