I had a lucky escape last year when I managed to chase off a Heron that had landed in our back garden and was attempting to get into the pond.
To be honest, I have always had my suspicions that it had managed to attack my goldfish Cat, as she had two graze marks on her sides, one of which later turned into a nasty ulcer. She got over it ok, but two of my other fish later developed ulcers which although I tried to cure them succeeded in killing the fish.
So there's every possibility that the Heron was indirectly responsible for the loss of two of my fish anyway!
