Pond two features three fish, often soaking up the sun at the right-hand side. Pond one is so covered in green, whether it be pond plants themselves or overhang, that it’s actually quite hard to see the water. Frogs still frequent the surface but visible newt activity is less prominent. That is to be expected as we head into autumn.
Pond snails have been noticeable in both ponds, particularly in the new smaller one this year. Wasps and bees often buzz near the ponds and have been known to get too close!
Whilst surface activity will die down, a lot will still go on out of sight in the depths of both ponds. I’ll have to pay close attention come freezing winter temperatures, particularly with the fish now on location.
