Spitting otter and a free goldfish

Naughty Mr Heron had  snaffled all but one of our goldfish.  We were considering leaving the pond to become a wildlife pond as we have frogs and newts in there but we felt sorry for the remaining fishy.  Off we went to the garden centre and bought five new fish. When we got home we discovered that we had been given six....    :-)  Then we set to and rejigged the pond and surrounding area.  Hopefully Mr Heron won't be able to get to the fish now... hopefully.... The spitting otter is solar powered and spits intermittently so anyone walking past will get a bit of a surprise if they aren't expecting it..

You can see the difference in size of the fish. The big one is our remaining fishy


  1. A lovely pond area Cherie; could you not put netting over it?

    1. Funny that you should mention netting Alison. That is exactly what Tony did last night. It does detract from it a bit but if it saves our little fish then we can live with it.

  2. How lovely and the otter is adorable. I hope your little fishies are ok. Let's hope the netting keeps Mr Heron away xxx
