How do I save Kermit and friends?
We have a pond on our patio which is being removed in late August (I know I know, it's good to have ponds but unfortunately this one is causing so many problems and a lot of stress so needs to go).
At the moment there are probably 4 or 5 frogs living in it as well as a couple of newts. I feel really bad about evicting the poor things from their home so I’m wondering what to do with them once it is emptied? If I let them loose at the back of the garden (there is an unused wild garden behind ours) will they find alternative accommodation themselves (I can maybe leave out some form of shallow water container for a while if that would help)? Or can I take them to a local pond somewhere - I’m not sure if that is allowed?
Even though there are lots of reasons the pond needs to go I have grown fond of the frogs and can’t bear the thought of them wandering about lonely and homeless, so any ideas how I can help them much appreciated…
