Water Fern azolla filliculoides. This invasive alien plant species usually sinks to the bottom of the water to over-winter or is killed off by hard frosts. This patch seemed very happy and going by how green it is - actively growing. I wonder if this patch managed to survive the freeze up in December or has it floated to the surface during the recent mild spell and already started reproducing.
