Frogs and hibernation: I moved a stone the other day and uncovered a hibernating Frog, flattened out as they often are when hiding away in protective crevice. Now the weather is really warming up, Frogs are emerging from all their over-wintering places, preparing to enter the water. Some, mainly the smaller males, will bury themselves deep in the mud at the bottom of a pond while most will bury themselves under logs, stones or mud away from water, so even if you don’t have a pond, this is another refuge you can provide while they live out of water, slowing down all their bodily functions, like all our amphibians, to survive our winters. With luck they will then wake in mild spells and help decimate your Slug population! Conditions: Warm, still and sunny. Temperature: Max 9- Min 2c.
