I like frogs and toads, but I have lost two this winter, they climbed into the pond and died under the ice which formed very solid one night. Very sad but no doubt will be some more come along in the spring. I suppose that is life. Not had ice form for as long or as hard as we have had it this year in ages.

Oh Oliveoil that's really sad. I read recently that a lot of people had followed advice, I think it was somewhere official like RHS, and let their ponds freeze thinking it was the right thing to do but lost their frogs and fish. We only seem to get visitors, they haven't yet had any spawn but I think it's because of the water feature itself. We inherited a small Belfast sink which I'm tempted to turn into a mini-pond to see if we get any residents. I do hope your frogs return this Spring, have you seen any recently?
