More Taddies...

Taddies are growing well, I've started feeding them on flake food too as they've eaten all the algae that had grown on the sides of the pond!

I whipped over to the cow pond today & nabbed some taddies from there - I'm hoping they're toad-poles rather than froggies (I've only ever seen baby toads round there). I also caught some young water boatmen & other insect nymphs which have all gone in.

Lots of hiding places under the bushes in the garden now so hopefully any youngsters will have a safe place to stay & grow up!!

Finished Off

Well, the surround is finished. I'm putting pieces of bark and wood under the surrounding bushes as habitats for any residents. The tadpoles are progressing well, they're a lot more rounded in shape and are more vigorous in their swimming.
