Yes Chris, they were in my garden pond
They look like Hawker Dragonfly larvae. To be realistic of all the Hawker Dragonfly species the one that is a regular visitor to garden ponds is the Southern Hawker. They can often be seen laying eggs in garden pond vegetation. A friend of mine had over 50 Southern Hawkers emerge from what was a very small garden pond in just a few days.
