A night time visit to my pond yesterday resulted in a pleasant surprise. As my torch passed over the water something caught my eye. It moved quite quick and at first I thought it may have been a newt but as it came back into view there was no mistaking it was a fish.
Not exactly sure how it arrived, perhaps it was in with the tadpoles I recently rescued or maybe it came as an egg on one of the plants added not so long ago or could a visiting bird have brought it?
According to my Pond Life Guide book, with it's red belly and greenish blue eyes it's a male Stickleback.
I'm hoping that it doesn't eat the tadpoles and it doesn't get eaten by the frog.
Do frogs eat fish?
