The pic doesn't do it justice really...the other side is covered with a beautiful green moss..:)

Hopefully I'll be able to turn it when I get it in situ over the next few days.

If your camera has a number of seconds delay set before capturing, an animal may have run or bird may have flown through the frame.
Check your camera setting.

The camera comes with three PIR's so I have disabled the side ones and have just used the central one.



Dont think it was the bubbles as I only had 2 clips on the sd card...If it was the bubbles I think the camera would have thrown a wobbler and recorded again and again.

Not added fish yet matey, I have frogs and Newts and all kinds of stuff going on so I might wait until next year when things have established.

I was off work today and captured this...

Ducks will provide plenty of fertilizer for your plants. Better get some soon so they can suck it up!

I like the grass edging but i'd imagine you have a bit of wicking going on how much water do you have to replace daily?

I haven’t replaced any water yet since I built it. In fact the pond is very high at the moment. We have had load of rain here in the UK. I have 400 litres of linked Waterbutt to install sometime this week. The plan is too install guttering on the summer house near the pond and run an underground pipe directly to the pond. :)

I hear them calling here for the first time, the toads and trees frogs are getting ready to invade the ponds.
