The Exodus Begins

A lot of Froglets in the pond, they're now starting to leave. Unfortunately, those that try to go via the slabs are meeting a grisly fate!
The slabs seem to suck all the moisture from the little 'uns + they perish very quickly.

I'm hoping this will fade as they age & get more moisture contained within them....

Froglet dried up on slab...
All Washed Up...

On a positive note, there are quite a few hopping round in the garden now so some are going the "right" way!

I went out with a torch last night & saw an adult toad sat in the shallow water - so it's being used by the locals & not just the imports!!

The sparrows are always bathing in it & Ratdog Harry stomps across the top sometimes...

I've put some moss in the gaps in the slate around the edge and that seems to be taking hold, which makes the whole setup look more established.

Overall I'm very pleased with it all....
