Got home from work and the garden pond is slowly filling back up again. My neighbour has referred to ‘the lake’ after reading about it in the local newspaper. A news item sent around Alresford wildlife members included a piece on the first inhabitants of the garden pond. If anyone is reading this blog you canfind out more about Alresford Wildlife at

The water beetles are still in residence in the pond despite the low levels. The wife is starting to moan about the exposed liner and how that looks so I am looking to cover this with shingle, pebbles and small rocks to try and create a different substrate for animals visiting the pond.

A newtpole has been rescued and released into the pond. I had other bugs and beetles in the same container but these have been kept away from the pond.

Photos to be uploaded soon…..
