I wasn't even aware you got tree frogs there! A great colour, too.
In reply to Nigel O:
Yes, we get 2 types of Tree frog, this one is Hyla meridionalis & much more common around here than Hyla arborea which I've never seen. They have a very loud call, which resonates if they happen to be in plastic downpipes or around drains!

The frogs and fish seem to co-exist without any problems. The frogs still frequent the pond, they just don't seem to lay any frog spawn.
Unfortunately, being a small pond, it has to be managed, or the plant life will take over, and it will become a quagmire before it becomes solid earth and plants.... LOL

Just to bring this thread up, a Tree-frog from May, doing gymnastics on the moth trap frame.
Very nice Hazel, would love to see green frogs here :)
We've a few common frogs that frequent our pond, though sadly, we don't seem to get frog spawn!
One day perhaps.
Just found this in pond ...

You must have very good eyesight Wendy! I didn't need glasses to see this whopper that I caught stealing dinner aound the moth trap last week
It sat there so long I think it sucked the poor beetle to death.
