I have a small but thriving pond and it houses frogs, newts and snails. There is infinite variety of unidentifiable water life from tiny beetles size of a full stop to mysterious tiny black jelly blobs that move about ( leeches??). I find sitting watching what goes on very therapeutic!! I look forward to learning more about all these things.

I'm looking to build a wildlife pond and surrounding bog garden in a very boggy part of our garden which is spring-fed. From what I have seen of your website so far, this is just the place to look! Looking forward to a mutually happy relationship.
