Something falling into the water would be my guess. I have some interesting shades on and in the water through the seasons. The catkins of the black poplar stain the water n the rain gauge a rusty colour. Must be lots of other plants that do a similar thing.

Thanks for that nutcutlet ill keep that in mind,having looked at pics of poplars,cant say weve got any around here unless something has blown in with the hurricanes that weve had lately haha

That was only an example Ian. Lots of plants will do it.

You soon get a fine silt of anything spread over everything in a pond. Lovely thing to have though. Wouldn't be without it

I think it's just algae.  I think it will disappear when the pond is more in balance.
