Today’s temperatures: the first using wireless sensors

Time

The wireless sensors are in, recording the new pond (green) and the air temperature (red). The old pond probe is a bit temperamental as I’m working close to the maximum range – so it’s not shown here.

It’s warmed up today a whole degree – reaching a high of 1 C. Throughout, the new pond stayed at a steady 0.8 C.

    Our pond is starting to thaw, but I have two fish that look as if they are frozen in the ice. Has anyone else experienced this? i thought they would have gone deep. I am watching with worry whilst the pond thaws – I can’t see the fish surviving being frozen in the ice – does anyone know anything about this? Cheers.

      Hi Hilary

      I think its unlikely that your fish will survive being frozen solid.

      Some creatures can: the American Wood Frog (Rana sylvatica), for example. But I’m pretty sure that none of the fish we have in the UK will survive freezing.
