We have been seeing lots of activity though pond cam this past week. Many pond creatures are still in the pond but remain dormant in the cold winter months. However this year the winter has been relatively mild so far. We have also had a lot of natural flooding which has also included the woodland pond.
So the view that you are seeing through pond cam is actually a flooded area near the pond that is currently underwater. So fish, newts and pond invertebrates are swimming amongst clumps of grass that are normally high and dry.
You can find out more about the natural flooding on an earlier post Natural Winter Flooding which also includes a link to some dramatic video footage.
