Is this normal? Leaches in the pond...
Hereford, United Kingdom
Last autumn, I got some of the water hyacinths out of my pond and put them in a bucket of pond water in the greenhouse. Unfortunately, the frost still got to them and they all died. So, today I tipped the whole lot into the compo bin. To my surprise, left at the bottom of the bucket were these leaches!!! Is this normal? I don't think I've ever seen leaches before in this country. Should I be worried about my fish? And where did they come from? Yours, slightly traumatised, Sid. :-S
