What DO herons do that needs repelling?
There's one moved in nearby, but it's delightfully civilised and polite. Or at least seems to be, should I suspect it of behaving nefariously on the sneak?

The best part is he got more fish and covered the pond with a 'bird proof ' mesh....that the heron poked a hole through and got them too! Now the pond is a rockery. :rofl:

Yeah Heron kept nicking my dad's Koi, as did the Fox. In the end one of them punctured the liner somewhere and the pond kept leaking, so he emptied it and filled it in as it had become too much work for an 80odd year old.

Shame though, we dug that 29 feet x 17 feet x 4 feet fecker by hand many years ago.

I'd guess going on these comments it's an overwhelming yes, especially if you have fish. :wink:

Yep, thanks guys, that cleared that up. Turns out it wasn't just a red herring.
