I've been defeated by a bird brain ...
Despite covering the pond in a lattice work of fishing-line strewn with scary bits of bright foil, the clever Heron has eaten all my fish. But maybe not all, as he must think there are still some left for his breakfast, as I found his prints in the snow today. He's simply walked right under the protecting wires as if they didn't exist.
Clearly I am going to have to rethink my defences before I can re-stock. I've outlined the difficult-to-see fishing line in green and his path in red.
