Hi all

For the second time we have newts in the garden pond along with quite a few frog tadpoles.
Fed with rain water and quite natural, IE water boatmen on the surface.
I know we are not to interfere with them but any advice? We give the tadpoles boiled nettles chopped up fine until they get legs, seem to have worked well over the years.

That's interesting dogcatcher, well they are still growing so we must be doing OK.

Made a hedgehog house this week, since we see the odd one in the garden, and hope it will be a safe haven come Autumn.
