well done bud i found a large toad in our garden last year thing is we're about 300 yards from nearest water although the bike path is around 50 yards away and there's stagnant water at the sides unless a heron had nabbed it and then dropped it.

Think it’s a “large red” (damselfly).

Absolutely over the moon with how quickly nature finds you, if you make the effort. :wub:

Great thread.  From previous owner of my house I have a pond that is not much bigger than a kitchen sink, even that attracted 3 frogs for a cool off in the heat earlier this year. We had a toad living beside it for most of last year.  So I'm planning to build a larger pond soon, this thread has added to my motivation, thanks. 

 

Re hedgehog chat, I've just made a hedgehog sized hole in my back fence to encourage them in https://scottishwildlifetrust.org.uk/activity/how-to-create-a-hedgehog-hole/

Just keep an eye on the security issues

 

Burglars are getting more and more creative about how they get access to properties these days

Pickerel Weed started to break the surface a couple of weeks ago. Hoping for some nice purple flowers on my pond soon. Lots of lily pads now.
 

I planted a wee wildflower meadow at the side of my house around the same time as I dug the pond. It’s now in full bloom and absolutely rammed with honey bees, bumble bees and hover flies.

Good man! Glad I could help in even a small way. Have you seen the toad houses you can buy? Cool as, but you could probably just make your own with some ceramic flower pots and some pliers. 👍
