A frog in each pond today. I am a little concerned that the freshly relined pond will not be able to support any tadpoles should there be any spawn deposited. Their usual first food is the green algae that has accumulated on the liner underwater. At present there is very little and even less marginal plants to generate any. Time will tell as the first tadpole is probably at least a month away. The other pond is OK but that will not be able to support huge numbers.

It's absolutely true what people say: "Frogs aren't silly". You hear that everywhere you go .....

Absolutely right. Number One topic of discussion.
I think that's called a 'truism'. If not it should be - ask a frog :nod:.
