small wildlife pond

Small frog is living in the pond. ☺ We have just made a small wildlife pond. We put 3 plants in. One oxigenates and there is a ramp. We have seen a frog / toad already. what else do we need? Its bare around the tub as it's heavy clay soil. Thank you




I'd have a pile of logs beside it for things to live in, I'd also have some low growing rockery plants around the edges for two reasons, they'll hide your pond edges and they'll also provide an abundance of flowers witch will attract bees etc. and it will also give baby frogs cover and a place to hide next year. May I also suggest moving the tallest of your aquatic plants to the back edge of your pond so that the view of your pond is less obstructed when standing at the front of it. overall it looks like you've got a lovely little pond there, mine is a fishpond not a wildlife one and I've done the above things and it still gets plenty of birds, frogs etc coming to it.
