Author's notes

Sorry, I could not get a better photo and do not expect anyone to identify these tiny fish, I just wanted to record that they are here and will die if it dries out again.

Hi Jacky, I have downloaded the original photo, cropped it and added it back to aid in identification. These fish are a major pest.

Michael thanks. If the ponds were looked after instead of being allowed to stagnate, there would still be waterbirds around to eat them.
