It works!!!!!

 Having had problems with a very persistent heron which feasted upon the fish in my formal pond, I placed an artificial heron next to the pond. I had read in an English garden pond book that this would keep real herons away; I must admit I was very doubtful that this would work, but it has. I have not seen a heron near the pond for the past three years. The pond now contains Blue Orfe, Goldfish, Crucian and Prussian Carp.
