Whilst out walking a few weeks ago I collected some frog spawn from a small pond, thought my grandson would be interested to see tadpoles develop into frogs. Most seemed to have hatched, so got a large plastic box and some mud and plant life from the pond. We got some tadpole food and they have been growing well. Feeding time turns into a frenzy. The tadpoles swim upside down and suck food particles from the surface. In their early development stage, they are vegetarian. I'm now feeding them on boiled broccoli. They seem to love the inside of the stalk. Every week I have to collect about 8 litres of water from the stream near where I found them to keep their water fresh. The pond where I collected the spawn, has long since dried up. I guess the tadpoles were eaten by birds and other wildlife. I'm hoping a lot of them will develop into little frogs so I can return them to the area round the dried up pond.
