I used to spend hours with my sister looking in my granddads pond, trying to see frogs and things, his pond was tiny but always seemed to be teaming with wildlife.
I'm really chuffed that our pond also seems to be chock full of little creatures, we have hundreds of tadpoles thanks to the local frogs that all seem to be living under our box hedge, millions of water snails which help keep the water nice and clean for everything else living there and this afternoon I spend 15 minuets spotting newts.

I must have seen about 8 in 5 minuets, I also spotted 6 or 7 Dragonfly Larva which is good news.

Pretty good for a small garden pond!
