Tues. 14th July 09.
Over the last few days I've been tidying up and cutting back around my wildlife ponds .I have 2 ponds linked with a stream, a submersible pump circulates the water around the ponds and down the stream at about 1800 gallons per hour.
The Dragon and Damselflies are beginning to emerge and the bottom pond has got a good few dozen Pond Skaters. The Sticklebacks have spawned and there are is a new generation of tiny sticklebacks around in the sheltered areas of the pond.My Minnows have entered the stream and there is plenty of mating activity, so I'm hoping they will spawn in the stream or in the top pond.
My Garden peaks in June so it's just past it's best, sadly my Wild Orchids are beginning to set seed.
Thanks for viewing.
see you soon.
