Our tadpoles are close to moving on. We don’t live near any water although we found the spawn in our garden. What’s the best option to give them a fighting chance of survival?

In your situation a few years ago (with tadpoles from Landport) I took them down to the Lewes Brooks area and released them into one of the water-filled ditches there. I hope they got on OK.

Keep them, make a pond, or just put a sink or other container in the ground with something in it for the froglets to climb out,

Toads don't always need a pond, just somewhere damp and moist, just sink an old washing up bowl in the earth with some stones and rocks in it so they can easily get in and out and you're away. No more slugs in the garden too !

Frogs and Toads only need water to breed. Frogs tend to stay nearer to water to keep cool in summer or even over winter. As mentioned, maybe sink a small pond or bucket into the ground with a few plants in and they'll be back. Good to watch all the other pond life too especially the dragon and damselflies.

Tadpoles are now on the verge of being a endangered species, protect them and If necessary release them into nearby ponds or brooks. If your neighbour has a pond insist that they have them as the mummy’s and daddies probably originated from there in the first place and passed the problem onto you, it’s important to
Protect this species as housing development has certainly taking its toll on our common wildlife. Thankyou for your support and raising this important topic.
