I was thinning out the pond plants yesterday, as my friend gave me some that are very invasive and cover the pond in no time. I put my hand in the water to grab some of the roots to trim....and came up with a well dead bird in my hand. Well, as you can imagine I screamed and threw it back into the water lol. The tadpoles must have snacked on it, as only wings and legs remained. I am much more careful about putting my hand into the pond now, lol!

Sorry, just thought I would share this little story with you

If I find anything dead in the garden I quite often put it in the pond that has tadpoles in it (including very small two baby chicks that didn't survive in my box last year). Couldn't put them in the bin! They were good food for the tadpoles. I even put old cat food in the pond !
