Pond teeming with life

frog in pond Apr 12

Last year we dug a pond. The aim is to encourage frogs onto the allotment. They eat bugs, slugs and snails. Might as well use nature to help control nature. Over the past couple of weeks we have had lots of rain and the pond was overflowing. When I checked it yesterday I discovered it full of life. I saw numerous newts and a couple of frogs. There are also lots of bugs swimming about. We are hoping to get some ducks soon so they will be using the pond as well.

Last year we had some frogs on the allotment. One large one lived in the greenhouse and a number of small ones took up residence in the polytunnel.

I snapped the photo of one of the frogs on my blackberry.
