Josh is a young boy (6) with a great enthusiasm for the countryside and Chicken Dave is, well, Chicken Dave.
Together, along with Josh’s mum and dad, Harriet and Chris, they were going to explore the world of ponds with a little help from one or two people along the way.
The first magic pond belonged to their friend Aimee, the local music teacher who was teaching Josh how to play the piano. After his lesson he would meet Chicken Dave in Aimee’s garden and they would begin to explore ponds.
Thanks to the people, and especially Candy, at the Hertfordshire and Middlesex Wildlife Trust they had a guide to tell them about a healthy pond and what should be in it.
There were 14 things on the list and in Aimee’s pond they could see only one. It was an enormous Yellow Iris.
