My pond is very neglected,the liner needs replacing so it is a foot lower than it should be. It's full of life, Including frogs, toads, common newts,dragonfly larvae and a pair of mallards. Birds use the shallow end for bathing, foxes drink from it,the heron fishes in it. Don't worry too much about the pond. So long as you have some oxygenating weed in, and take out dead leaves in autumn, all you need to do is watch.
