beetles are increasing in number….

A night time survey last night revealed that there are four water beetles in my little garden pond. The mayflies are growing nicely and most of the fly larva have started to pupate and hatch out.

The pond has another dusting of grass cuttings which seem to provide some good habitat for the inverts in the water column. The water is crystal clear. The plants which have taken include some grasses, rushes and garden moss.

The pond levels are gradually getting lower after the deluge of rain we had previously.

The exposed liner has been covered with pebbles and gravel. Fingers crossed that louise feels that the pond is not too ugly now.
