When we had our pond excavated, chappy with the bulldozer asked me what fish I would be getting. None, i said, it's for forgs and toads and newts. He had a fit of hysterical giiggles at the idea of a mad English woman paying good money to have a pond for wild amphibians. He still comes and does odd jobs for us. The latest is the new shed base and he loves to know what the English ahev been up to.
Been so cold here the frogs and toads are only just getting into mating mode. heaven knows what they'll think of a daft Labrador boouncing around the pond but at least he and Rasta see off the mallards that might eat the spawn..
