Pond Covers.

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if anyone has made a thread on this before, but here goes.

 

When making covers, please be aware of the safety of wildlife. 

 

This morning I found a dead hedgehog in my pond. I wasn't sure how he'd managed to climb in since this pond is partially above ground, but he'd done it. It was sad as I often see him around my patio looking for food. The cover on the pond had broken at the edge, and he'd fallen in. If I had made a stronger cover, this wouldn't have happened. It's very disheartening.

 

Some animals are good swimmer, but will give up if they cannot escape due to steep sides.

 

Thanks for looking.

It's not just covers tho.. I left a large net on the edge of our pond one evening... and we found a dead frog in the net at the bottom the next afternoon. I felt terrible!!!!
