If you build it, they will come………..Eventually

I've been a little despondent over my attempts to encourage wildlife into our garden, and the incident with the deep frozen frogs made me wonder about keeping the pond near the back door.

Well, on Sunday morning, whilst giving the area a tidy up, I removed some blanket weed, and discovered a newt!

Seems to be a female Smooth Newt, and it's still in there, plus a small frog which flits in and out.

Considering the pond is little bigger than a washing up bowl, in a suburban back garden, I'm pretty pleased.
