I was checking the ponds the other day and managed to catch two turtles sunning themselves. These are new ones and I have no idea where they came from. The same day, I discovered the other big turtle that has been with me for several years, dead in the big pond. No idea why it died but put it down to a winter casualty
The two new ones are enormous. The boards on the deck are 2×6 so it gives you an idea of the new turles size. Wonder how long these will stay for? As with all things Nature, I will enjoy them while I can.
