Kew Green pond
Mostly frozen over on this bitterly cold January day.

Richmond Council's website (LinkExternal link ) describes the pond: 'Originally thought to have been a natural pond fed from a creek of the tidal Thames, Kew pond now has no natural inflow. During high (spring) tides sluice gates are opened to allow river water to fill the pond via an underground channel. The pond is located to the northeast of Kew Green. It is concreted, rectangular in shape and contains important reedbed habitat which is vital for conservation and resident water birds. The pond is managed in partnership with the Friends of Kew Pond.'
