Frogs in home-made pond in Manchester

Made our 8' by 4' pond Autumn and Dec 2007 - hard work! Put uncle's frogspawn in spring 2008. They hatched into tadpoles, even the late ones which survived ice and hatched in Spring 2009, and grew, spreading into the garden and the field beyond. Surprise, surprise, about 70 frogs turned up (they may have hibernated in the pond, or not). Then they started breeding. The croaking even drowned out the birds and helicopters. We ended up with 40 balls of spawn - now a pond full of tadpoles. Looks like the hard work was all worth it!
