    Deterring Herons

    At the moment,we have lightweight nets on our pond with a frame of 40mm plastic water pipe,light & easy to move but they are a bit unsightly.We do have Herons around our way but we wre wondering if a pergola would deter these pests.Any advice would be appreciated.

    Pergolas do help, although if particular herons already know there is a pond there it might not stop them. It depends how you design your pergola really.

    It may sound silly, but I've been hanging an old CD on a bit of fishing line on the edge of the pond for three years now after getting regular visitors, only seen one since, that was two years ago when the line broke an the CD went for a bath takes a mere slightest of a breeze to make it move, and catch the light.

    I am having success with floating pond rings which are much less unsightly than covering the pond with mesh.
    6000g unheated in ground koi pond
    +3000g lily/Anoxic pond attached
    26 koi (25 to 60cm)
    Bottom drain & Skimmer to Drum QK50 - PondXpert Variflow 30000 to 30" Lacron with 200 ltr micro K1
    Blue eco pump to MB, returned via Anoxic pond (30 baskets)
