    I would make a frame as NickD has suggested and attach some form of mesh.
    Maybe worth a trip to a dedicated steel place - they had loads of cheap options when I had a look around a few weeks back at my local one (when I bought my steel rods)....and so long as I spent more than a tenner they would cut it for free whatever size I wanted.

    What about these?

    I've just been in the garden and spotted a roll of welded mesh fencing....I used to use it for partitioning off the chickens. That's easy to get in your car and would work brilliantly fixed to a frame - fine for toddlers.

    Yep that would do it, will have to think how to make a frame to fit the pond - if only it were rectangular

    Unless its a really odd shape - I'd just make it rectangular and not worry about a bit of overhang.

    Just a quick update. Turns out my local Homeb@se sold the exact stuff I wanted (200mm mild steel mesh) in smaller sheets! Just need to hacksaw it into the correct shape now, and it can sit over the pond permanently.
