Hi Lead farmer the image above is just one I found on google to illustrate an easy entry point for amphibians. The other pictures I have posted are my pond.

Thanks. I would have missed it too. Had to reach for the subtitiles button when the sound disappeared half way through - very annoying! Great to have Monty and Nigel back.

Thanks Forester. If you click on my picture to enlarge and then zoom in, you can see all the clumps of frogspawn - about 30 so far!

I counted 60 frogs in my pond this afternoon. I couldn't believe it! The noise they were making was very impressive as they all crooned along togather.Quite a sight, I'll try to upload some pics later.

For those with cat, fox or other animal problems....

Hi Vicki. The water scarecrow has  adjustable settings so that it will not affect birds if you don't want it to. It is approved by the RSPB (I think)

Morning! I have just had one of those special offer emails through from Amazon telling me there is an offer on the Contech water scarecrow £38.99 with free delivery. This is an excellent product (imo) and well worth the money instead of spending out on various other recommended deterrents. This works and doesn't go out of date, disappear with the rain etc. it is moveable and just needs an outside tap. I think it's good timing for the beginning of the season to stop cats doing what they do in newly turned soil or on emerging seedlings etc.

I have no connection with the company, just own one and can recommend it.
