I have a small pond in my garden which looks dirty and has a lot of leaves from the tree above and is quite shallow (however room to add more water) - tonight I have noticed a frog and frog spawn in the pond. Is there anything I can do to make it more habitable for the frogs? Do I need to top it up with more water? And should I try and clean out the water and garden debris? Thanks!

My frogs here, although they have a separate small wildlife pond which is quite mucky, also share goldfish pond for whatever reason best known to them! Am waiting to see where they choose to spawn, should I be so lucky!

Hi , so hope you can view this years froggies
There is a Newt on Red Leaf in this one^
Just tonight have discovered two quite large frogs in my goldfish pond but no spawn yet! The biggest of the two nicked off whilst changing battery on cam, but this one looks a decent size too, guessing last year babies who must have hibernated nearby ... so thrilled!
