Winterkill

Many thanks to Suzanne Grieve for sending the link regarding ‘winterkill’ and what to do to help frogs survive icy spells. Because many frogs hibernate at the bottom of ponds they are prone to dying when the ponds freeze over. With the recent weather changes we have experienced in England, and repeated thaws and freezing, it has been particularly bad for hibernating frogs. Lets hope we over the worst, but if we get further freezing, or for something to remember next year, the advice provided is definately worth remembering:  http://blog.gardenersworld.com/2010/01/26/dead-frogs/
