Re: FROGS

Thanks Jacksparrow. Will go for the clean-up. Not sure what to do about the resident frog though. Do I just remove the stones he hides under and hope he leaves? Bit worried about scaring him off for good.

Re: FROGS

Just been clearing some of the winter debris from my home-made frog bowl. I know you're supposed to leave a certain amount, but the water is quite black and smells stagnant.

Re: Triple Surprise

Meant to say that since taking these photos I've added further stone ramps at both ends of pond as a further aid to the mini beast!

Hi Kev. It doesn't show up on the photos but I have built a kind of stairway from flattish stones leading up to water surface. Watched the frog climb up it the other day. Think he spends a lot of time under the stairs as I often see just a leg sticking out.

Re: FROGS

Thanks Kev. Here's a photo of my frog habitat consisting of water feature and plant pot hideaway. Pic of resident frog to follow as he spends a lot of time out of sight.
