Mead Farm: Duck Pond

On a hot summer’s day there aren’t many better places to be at Mead than by the duck pond. Our ducks certainly know how to keep cool now that the temperature has finally gone up. 

One issue we have to cope with is constantly battling the algae. There is a heavy duty filter system and fountain, however you still have to kee your eye out for blanket weed. It has been a great way for pupils to see how quickly microorganisms can grow and flourish in the right conditions.
