    Herons!!!!!!!!!

    I hate the bloody things.

    Yesterday just along the road from us there were 8 or 9 in a field

    They're a protected species . . . . you might think they look nice but they're more like vermin as far as I'm concerned.



    I hate to think how many kilos of fish they had out of my lake last winter.

    Yes , I have the same problem and in winter we get mink and otters which cleaned me out of fish a few years ago.:Eeek:
    Have since put an electric fence around, not pretty but at least protects the fish :thumb:

    ditto...... £1200 of koi carp in one sitting and spiked the largest one worth around £850 which it could not pick up as it was tooooo big , which then developed a fatal infection.

    dont keep them now.

    turned koi pool into large heated plunge pool, :Doh: wife is happier :Cool:
