looks like its been there for years rather than months!.

Just shows how quickly wildlife moves in and takes over.

Awesome job

I think the best was probably a tiny hitch hiker on the hornwort from my parents pond. But he obviously doing ok which is a good sign!

Hi all,
do quite like the swamp look if im honest
That was what I wanted. I'd guess that this was peak pond (2012) in terms of biodiversity.



But succession didn't stop there and by 2018 it was just solid plants (mainly Equisetum fluviatile & Eleocharis palustris) with no visible water. I was in New Zealand during the 2018 summer <"and it dried right out">.

cheers Darrel
