Heron deterrent & pond

Got rid of planks that held up bird netting to stop heron. Replaced planks with stone pedestals that match the other water feature. Fishing line added to hold up the bird netting. That Heron has lost the war.
2 of 9 stone pedestals - waterfall view
Another view with Cinnamon who is now my largest Koi.
Another view with 4 pedestals

    @Capernius would the paintballs stain him so I know if it is the same heron each time? All critters are only here for me to enjoy, I don't eat them.

    In 2015 I doubled the size of the pond and depth of the pond. Then had the pedestals increased to encircle the entire pond. I got rid of the net and added "fishing" line to deter the heron. So far it seems to be working. Only time will tell.
