Got this photo from my pond this afternoon. I thought frogs didn't hang around around in ponds once they had spawned?

My frogspawn hatched but then the tadpoles disappeared. I think my fish must have eaten them.

Frogs can be in pond all year, newts, dragonfly larva and great diving beetles all make a meal out of tadpoles. I've no tadpoles even though i had mass's of frogspawn. No fish in my pond but lots of said species.

Thanks Michael, I always thought that frogs only went into water to spawn and hibernate but spent the rest of the time on land.

Hi All
A neighbour has a lot of frog spawn in his garden and wishes to give some away and thought if anyone has a new pond installed it might be OK to start the pond off with this spawn.

Regards

Hi John,
It's generally considered a bat idea to move spawn around as you can also inadvertently spread disease between amphibian populations, and move undesirable plants too.
According to Froglife, there's no such thing as too much spawn. There's lots of info here on what they do and don't recommend and why: http://www.froglife.org/advice/FAQs/spawn_tadpoles/index.htm

Cheers
Clare

I have been walking various sites in the hunt of lizards or slowworms without success,
I have heard that there are a few lizards in he Cleadon Hlls vicinity, but I'm wondering:
Have you EVER seen a lizard or slowworm in Souh Tyneside? Or heard reports of them?
Have you recently seen any?
Have you ever seen anything in the dunes area?

I have never seen lizards or slow worms in South Tyneside. Despite the information board on Cleadon Hills mentioning common lizards I have yet to see one there and I am up there most days.

Hi,

While in the Marine Park I noticed a turtle / terrapin basking in the sunshine on the surface of the lake, must have been about 6 inches long, before I could take a photograph it ducked below the surface.
I presume this has been dumped by some misguided person!
Anyone else seen this creature or know what it is?

Not seen it myself on my walks here but will keep watching for the reptile now..
If its only that size its surely not been here that long? I wonder if it will become tame here feeding off the sliced white etc. many a park visitor provides? I know theres a population of sticklebacks still in the lake as a Cormorant often catches them when it visits.
Welcome to the forum and pleased to see your first post.

Nicky... Ive never seen any reptiles etc. either around our area ( bar the released ones etc.). But it was interesting what the bloke repairing the walls over Cleadon hills mentioned a few months back regarding Lizards.

We carried out torchlight survey of the ponds in Whitburn Coastal park last night as part of the toad monitoring project. No toads but we did see a few frogs and large amounts of frogspawn. There was spawn in all three ponds, most of it was in the reedbed pond with smaller amounts in the other two.
First toad seen today on the 'wrong' side of the wall so the toad migration may have finally started.
