        I've somehow missed this thread recently @kindredspirit but great to catch up. :smile:
        Fantastic to have the Moorhens breed on your pond, at least they weren't the more aggressive Coots!

          Yep, the moorhens seem to be very well behaved. Amazing that there's enough food for them.
