If I said the wrong thing it was a Senior Moment
Great goodness.... what a change!!
Way back when I lived in the UK, I had a little garden pool that was probably about a metre long ...I loved it and could spend hours watching the stuff whirling around in it. Size isn't everything 👍Superb stuff, I was proud of our tiny Wildlife Pond then I saw this!!
Flood forest is unaffected ... despite being close, it is another side of a small hill and does not receive its water from the area of this pond. There are no above ground drains, just (fortunately relatively ineffective) underground Soviet drainage - this now supplies my pool. Pool is now full 👍I hope that the digging doesn't do any harm for flooded forest. Usually when people (in Finland) want to deepen their home shores (be it a lake or a pond), they do so by digging the shores deeper, when a more sensible trick would be to make a dam in a drain.
