Sink Wildlife Pond


By Great

Hoping to turn an old heavy porclaine sink into a wildlife pond. How do I plug the hole so water doesn't escape? The old plug hole? And will it be big enough for tadpoles?



use silicone seal to seal the plug in place. taddys should be ok in it too.

I have found that the best thing to do with a wildlife pond is to let nature do it, just stand back and watch.

Thanks Karen. I have my pond all done now. Im watching, Im watching lol I have already seen a bluetit chasing a sparrow and the bees and hoover flies have found it already. Used an old tin bath as I didn't get the sink. It looks so much smaller though, now it's in the ground!
