Yes, they will learn in a few months that they can fly out of your enclosure.

The main way  to predator-proof them is to shut them up at night. They are very unlikely to get taken during the day with all the other livestock you have around. They get quite big and tough. We've lost chickens and guineas (at night), but never a duck, even when they don't all come to be locked up. Main thing is to teach them there will be food in the shed every night.

I just lock them in at night by rattling dog food in a can and calling them about the same time every night. They come to their shed, get the dog food, and I shut it up.

I don't know whether your pond will be so attractive that they will spend their time there. We don't have one. Someone else needs to chip in on this.
