After reading through Jeremy’s Garden Pond Blog – finding a blog entry on frog introduction of duckweed – Duckweed or should that be frogweed?

I have managed to dig out old photos of common frogs in my parents garden carrying leaflets or fronds of duckweed and the non native water fern as they travelled around their garden – My dad has been noticing that duckweed and the water fern turned up in a second pond. Is this evidence that frogs move these aquatic plants around?
