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 http://www.alresfordwildlife.org.

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…..
