Five years ago we bought three Koi carp fingerlings and four tiny Golden Orfe for our small garden pond. Every winter I fear for their survival, as the die-back of the water weeds and marginal plants expose them to predation. And indeed: last year one of the Carp was stabbed by a Grey Heron. Amazingly, the remaining two of each species reappeared today: the carp must weigh around a pound at least: they're about a foot long now!
