- - our first wildlife pond -
not only provide hiding places for critters and somewhere that eggs can
stay concealed until they hatch but they also help oxygenate the
water. In some of my underwater video footage streams of bubbles
are seen rising from them.
My three favourites pictured above are common
and cheap to buy. A small bundle can be purchased from any
aquarist shop for a couple of pounds but if you followed the advice I
gave earlier anyone with an established pond will happily give you a
bucketful during the growing season as they need thinning out regularly.
