What was once the pool is now the pond, and has been since the day we moved here. It is the centre of the garden, and although the koi and goldfish that live in it are confined, they are almost guaranteed a long and relatively stress free life.
Granted, we have the annual visits from the Herons and the occasional visit from the Reed Cormorant, and even a single visit from a Hammerkop, but we have lost no adult koi.
The fish regularly spawn these days and we now have around a hundred fish all told.
