I live in Newark, DE - near a park which has herons abiding in it during the summer. Of course they like to sit on the roofs in the neighborhood & see if they can see fish in everybody's pond (and many of us do have ponds). My pond is 6 x 8 x 3' - I dug it myself in clay - and I keep 2 aerator pumps going all the time. I have plants in it in the summer, and utilize pond enzymes to keep the Ph right.. I do not have a filter. Most of my fish are goldfish - comets and one fantail. They usually have babies in the summer. The only worries I usually have are the blue herons coming in and trying to feed there. Is it possible to keep my net off for the winter? Where do the herons go in cold weather?
