I have built a pond in the garden. In a few days I shall buy some goldfish and hopefully this will be the beginning of a small colony of fish. Yesterday, the heron that flies over every day, stopped on a chimney pot a few houses up the street. I suspect he was making an assessment of possibilities! His eye for ponds and potential ‘breakfasts’ is renowned. I have prepared a cover to protect the fish and hopefully, the heron will not sate his hunger on the fish. Sometimes it’s good to review our collection and to see where gaps need to be filled and to fill those gaps with Scottish and/or English notes.
