Thanks for the advice Clare, it looks as though I may have a long wait then as I think I'll probably fall into the category on the advice sheet "your pond is isolated from other amphibian populations" and therefore have to give it 1-2 years before thinking about introducing amphibians, but fingers crossed.

The funny thing is, my mams garden doesn't even have a pond (nor do any of the surrounding gardens) and yet its alive with frogs which are under every plant and stone you turn over and they even have to clear the lawn of frogs before they mow it.

When I lived at Whiteleas we had a good population of Palmate newts in the back garden and the occasional toad, but we never got any frogs there either? Maybe it's just me lol.

As a kid (1970's) the best place for Smooth newts was a pond next to the railway lines at Newton Garth farm which was known locally as the "sticky" due to the mud. It was absolutely teeming with them and a damn shame when it was infilled in the 1980's to make a turn out field for the horses.

Where abouts is your pond - I can compare it to the map I have and see if i know of any garden ponds with amphibs nearby.

Hi All

I was up at Blanchland for the day yesterday and plenty of frog spawn on the way up to the moors. Not much else to see in the gloom.

I have extremely good news to report as I type this note frogs are laying (is that the correct word?) spawn in my pond - good news or what?

I saw them this morning and the fruits of their labours!!

As this is happening live highlights will be available tonight on Hatch of the Day. I'll get my coat........
