Na­ture Pond

Practical Fishkeeping (UK) - - Fishkeeping Know How -

Na­ture ponds spark up some great child­hood mem­o­ries for me. I re­mem­ber go­ing pond-dipping at pri­mary school and catch­ing the coolest un­der­wa­ter crea­ture ever – the wa­ter scor­pion, which earned me a lot of ku­dos from my class­mates. That day sealed my love of ev­ery­thing aquatic, and many chil­dren have sim­i­larly been amazed, cap­ti­vated and ed­u­cated just by a dip of a net and emp­ty­ing the con­tent into a mar­garine tub.

Nat­u­rally, wet­lands are some of the most bi­o­log­i­cally di­verse habi­tats in the world, so even adding just a small na­ture pond will en­cour­age lots of ex­tra life into your gar­den or back yard.
