Doubt very much if the OP has a turtle in his pond, being from the UK :)
Mind you there's a local tale that some idiot dumped a terrapin in one of the big lakes at the JCB factory in nearby Rocester several years ago. It's since been seen basking on an island, but they stand no chance whatsoever of catching it, the lakes are some considerable size. Don't think it would overwinter anyway.

Those are dead roots it looks like. Either way nothing to worry about just wash the substance off..

Yes the sides of the pond are a nice colour green from algae growth

@Nyboy.........Only in captivity, same with terrapins and tortoises too, so no wild species of any. Occasionally one of the species of sea turtle has been sighted offshore, seas are too cold in general in these parts.
