:clap3: Went out with a torch tonight, saw 1 pair and 4 single frogs, a bit disappointing, plenty of newts though.  :clap3:

:clap3: Just cleared the cover of duckweed off the pond and there are loads of newts in there already. At least 2 female GCN's and loads of palmates and smooths just soaking up the sun, just need some more frog spawn to feed them.  :clap3:

:clap3: Strange, last year there was a shortage of newt food, daphna and mosquito larva, I had to import it, this year, no shortage, must've been the early warm spring started it off.  :clap3:
