The Old Frog Pond

The pond has a clay base so the level of the water fluctuates a little throughout the seasons.

The acacia at the right of the photo gives cover from anything above the pond

duckpond and reeds
There is quite a variety of junca and other water plants

overgrown reeds
The rushes extend well into the shallower end of the pond

Although there is plenty of sun on the pond during the day, there are always some shady spots

Coryline frog shelter
Cordyline leaves, tied in bundles provide hiding spots for frogs and lizards

................ But for some reason that I am at a loss to understand, I have not seen a single tadpole
or sign of frogspawn in the pond - even though I am always finding frogs
under rocks and in long grass nearby.
