Curious wildlife rescue!
Yesterday we finished off painting the outbuildings, and afterwards we decided to drain the plastic cattle-troughs to move them indoors out of the weather (we have no cattle, as yet). Over the winter I was sure I'd seen two goldfish in one of the troughs, despite the at-times two-inch-thick ice on the water, and as we drained the trough we eventually found them, fished them out, and popped them in a bucket.
They seemed healthy, and were of good size, so one of our volunteers, Kent, took them home with him to release them into the pond in his garden. He christened them Lucky and Luckier, though they're difficult to tell apart!
