Mini pond

Good luck with your mini pond Alice. Ponds are so much fun and a vital habitat for so many creatures. My sons love peering in our small one and I get just as excited as they do lol.
MrsGarden, that's a terrific pond. You're making me want to make another one with an old spare dustbin lid. Think I might have a go tomorrow,

My pond is a year old now but we haven't had many amphibious visitors :(

Cheers everyone, I've made my garden as wildlife friendly as I can with upturned pots and logs etc strewn about by the pond. The grass is growing longer by the pond edge and is providing cover.
Guess I will just have to wait and see what turns up in the next few months.

Is it normal for natural ponds to be quiet? We found larvae this morning in the river but nothing in the large pond nearby.

Cheshire has GC newts but I've never seen any. I have tried to attract them but to no avail.

Well pond dipping was a waste of time- didn't find a thing, not even a worm lol. I've never seen the natural pond so quiet. No frogs either and it's raining here today. Maybe it's a bit early yet.
I don't know anyone around here with a pond so there's noone I can ask about pond stuff other than you guys. Thanks for your help.

Hope you have fun too. We have found quite a few larvae of some sort that have just gone in the garden pond.

Hi and thanks for your reply Dove. That's a very good point and it makes sense that I shouldn't find them in the pond that much.
Well I'm off now to go pond dipping with my youngest son. Who knows what we will find?

Ps: the natural pond is just behind the garden.

Cheers, I'm going to go down to the natural pond tomorrow for a bit of pond dipping.
The plants are doing great, just need the frogs to stick around.

If you were an amphibian, would you want to live here?
