Another pond emergency

I woke up this morning (groggily, not enough sleep) and pulled back the curtains to see if the grey sky was actually realised as drizzle. My attention was distracted from the weather by the sight of the damn heron standing in the middle of our pond. It's the first time this year we've seen him... panic stations! The netting which had been taken off after the great frog spawn disaster was hurriedly replaced (in the drizzle). No sign of any fish. I hope that they are just in hiding and sulking because there is no sunshine and that they will be back later. Problem is that it gets light around 4:30am or something... so the heron could have been having an all-you-can-eat buffet for an hour and a half. Poor little fishes!
