    wading birds such as cranes and herons get fish eggs stuck to their legs and in turn transfer them to pools of water where they hatch and lo and behold we have fish where none were before.

    There are two ways fish may enter a pond due to excessive rainfall. They swim or are flush from a pond further up in the watershed in to ponds below. Or, they can swim up stream and enter over the spillway, if there is water going over it.

    This happens frequently with ponds in floodplains.
