Air and pond temperature over the last few days

Air and pond temperature over the last few days

It’s been around freezing for a day or two now near Oxford, dropping down to minus 4 C last night.

But throughout, the water has been hovering around 4 C, the temperature kept up at night by the insulating ice cover.

So what’s the signficance of all this? It means your animals are kept safe under the water by nature’s own specially developed home insulation – ice.
