Hello everyone, I am feeling sad, glad, and downright fed up today. Sad because I have found most of my frog population dead at the bottom of my pond and some outside in my borders. This has happened over a couple of months since their arrival. I had a couple of dead ones last year but thought they were probably old ones so normal. I have contacted Frog life and apparently there is a mystery disease, but they were very interested the fact I live in the northwest! Also the spawn is not developing even though I can see the tiny tadpoles!
I am glad because my garden is now attracting lots of creatures and birds to include a sparrowhawk and more recently a reed hunting pecking around picking up the crumbs. Wonderful!
I'm fed up due to a chest complaint sapping my energy, the bad weather up here and consequently boring me out of my head!! Ah well! I,'ve always got my GW. mag. Have a nice bank hols.
