In my garden we have a trampoline that sits in a hole in the ground, the hole has now filled with rainwater after all the storms and today I found a clump of frogspawn at the bottom. Is it possible to move the frogspawn somewhere else as I don't think it's a suitable environment for them as the water may dry up and they wont be able to jump out of the hole once they do grow into frogs, there's also no source of food for them. I won't be able to feed the tadpoles as I'm away at college during the week. I read online that you shouldn't move frogspawn to a different pond but in this case I think it's the only option. We live near a river so there should be suitable wet areas. What is the best way to go about moving them/choosing a new habitat so as to disturb them the least? Also the parents are nowhere to be seen. Any help would be much appreciated.
