Bit of a long shot, but does anyone know of anywhere local that I can pick up a few tadpoles to populate my new pond with?
I have my own jam jar and sieve.
Thanks,

Oh dear- shows what I know.
Why would it be illegal though? Is frog-theft a thing?

Depending where is your pond is, the frogs (or maybe newts) will quite likely find it anyway. They found ours in the Nevill almost straight away. Do make sure that your pond has some way that they (and other animals that might fall in) can easily climb in and out. By the way there's a Sussex Amphibian & Reptile Group who can provide helpful advice.

Actually I've just looked it up and it isn't illegal but not recommended for environmental reasons. Look it up to decide for yourself. I should say that in my experience it is best to avoid fish if you want more frogs as they eat the tadpoles. Also newts do the same. If your pond gets full of newts then frogs will not be successful and vice versa. Others may have different experiences.
