Natural born pond maker

Wild boars make little ponds

Wild boars make little ponds

My favourite animal is the wild boar.

They are cute and cuddly (well, I think so) but even better they are one of nature’s natural pond makers.

This one is in a zoo, but all over continental Europe where boars are common you can often see the little, garden pond-sized, pools that their snouting and grubbing create.

As farm escapees spread in this country, we can look forward to a new way of adding ponds to the countryside – if not in your garden.
