Dragonfly and damselfly larvae will be safe in my wildlife pond, below the thin later of ice. The centre of my wildlife pond is the deepest part of the pond and won’t freeze over thereby protecting the wildlife below. If your pond has frozen over there is no need to smash the ice or do anything. At this time of year, we can all help wildlife by putting a bowl of fresh water out for birds and wildlife – to allow them to drink and bathe.
