the common frog

hoping for this sight next spring in Alresford

My previous pond was designed to have plenty of warm shallow water to enable tadpoles to develop into frogs very quickly. When I noticed that the pond was heavily shaded with vegetation I went to work replicating a grazing animal removing all the vegetation and taking it away to allow light and warmth into the pond and particularly on the shallows.

tadpoles group together which provide protection from predators.
