Gary, your pond sounds great. I added a small pond with minnows for the same reason. The funniest was how many people told me that I needed to have bird netting over the pond and other similar bird deterrents, otherwise the birds would eat all of my fish. When I said that the point of the fish was to attract birds, they gave me a look as if I had grown an extra head.
Isn't it amazing how many birds come flocking to the water? I quadrupled the bird numbers in my garden overnight.
