Thank you to all of you for your replies. I found a regurgitated starling(YUK) at the side of the pond when I was trying to take photos (not sucsessful, too much reflection) This made me wonder if there was something dead in my pond. So I will summon up the courage to have a rake around when I have a few minutes. Will let you all know if there is.

I have seen the film as you describe, hence the clean out last year, but this is not on the surface but in the water. It started in one part of the pond and slowly spread. My pond has been established now for about 5/6 yrs.now and am totally flumoxed.

To answer all three replies 1) I could take a photo but Ido not think it will show up, I will give it a try though. 2) It completely fills the pond 3) It definately is not spawn.

I have heard of a "blue algea" in some large areas(like reservoir size) but I have never  seen it. I do get leaves falling in, but this happens every year, hence the clean out last year.

Thank you phillippa but I don't have fish. I have my pond purely for nature. Chris

Hi, My pond (which was cleaned a little last year) has gone a little bluish, as though some milk has been spilled in it. It started at one end but has slowly spread. I think it must be some kind of algae but i'm not sure. Water snails & plants appear ok but it is not attractive looking. Can anyone enlighten me? Chris
