update on water levels

In Uncategorized on August 21, 2010 at 1:58 pm

The first island has arisen from the pond as the water is slowly drying up. I suspect that the water is drying up through the sandy substrate.

It is quite concerning to see the water level go down so quickly. The urge is to get more water in there. I am now resisting this temptation so I can leave the pond to develop as naturally as possible.

The life in the pond is just the ‘wrigglies’ I have at least two types biting midge larvae and other larvae which are worms
The numbers are building up so at least the pond will be providing insect prey for other animals.
