Bit of a carp new year…


Had a report on Twitter that some of the carp in the pond next to the Prince of Wales pub have died – he suspects that some overflow from defrosting drains may have overflowed during the cold weather. Anyone else know anything?

    Carp in the pond? I had no idea there were fish in there.

      You can see them cruising near the surface in summer sometimes. There are (or were) a small shoal of carp in the pond. Not sure how many survived the poisoning though. Judging by the size of the dead fish they were at least four years old. Hopefully there will be a few left come spring.
