I'm terrible at this blogging malarky.

The taddies have all grown up & left home. The pond was infested with duckweed, but I couldn't remove it while they where there as I scooped up as many of them as I did duckweed.

I had a clean up 2 weeks ago & afterwards saw a baby newt about 1.5cm still with gills. After an hour or so lying on my belly & looking into the pond I saw 2 adults on the bottom too - so really doing something right.

The Albino White Cloud Mountain Minnow is still there, as is it's normal coloured colleage. I'm tempted to get some more as they don't seem to affect the wildlife and will be useful for keeping mozzies down now all the taddies have gone......
