Ponds
« on: March 17, 2002, 11:24:10 PM »
Tv

I'm also the proud owner of a pond, dug it out last year much to my wife's horror! Frog's spawn's great, but you really need newts... Its so mild at the moment that our newts are out already!


But my tip for frogs are watch out for water bettle larvae or even waterboatmen as they eat an awful lot of tadpoles

Rock'n'roll!

Hi Alan,

It might be a while before we can provide TV with anything to go in his pond as he was just starting to dig it around the time of the last Southwick gig.
Unless he had time in his hectic schedule to finish it of I suspect there will be no "BIG" fish or anything else in it for that matter till the summer.  8)

I'm sure TV will let us know if he need anything fishy  :!:  :!:  :!:

All the best,see you at Southwick

Hi All,

Last time I saw TV's pond it was looking pretty good  :twisted:

Though he did tell us at the Verge last week that he lost one of his (Big :?:) fish  :twisted:
I assumed it died in the cold weather....or did it actually escape  :!:

I'm sure Steve The Fish will be happy to replace it come the good weather

So many frogs, so few newts, and were they really dragon fly's?

At least Mart resisted the urge to push me in. :lol:

After some research on the internet, I can confirm the alien like creatures that made Tj concerned for my safety, were in fact dragonfly larva.

Saving the Planet
« Reply #8 on: November 03, 2006, 05:50:24 PM »
Don't normally read yesterday in Parliament but this made me chuckle:

David Chaytor, the Labour MP for Bury North, said he had a cunning plan to save the planet. It was a simple, cheap and practical. MPs sat forward in anticipation.

“Every home and garden and backyard should have a pond!” he cried. MPs laughed. Mr Chaytor is more dour than disgusted but he is not used to being laughed at. He ploughed on with his plan, which is to force every new secondary school to have a pond.

At this point Dennis Skinner, a world expert on disgust, pointed at the Tories: “There’s plenty of pond life over there!”

Well at least some of the TUT's, and TV, of course, are doing their bit!

I'm shocked  8O

The Health and Safety implications of every home and secondary school having a pond, surely in the nanny state we live in such an idea is propostuous  8O

I've got a little pond near my vegtable plot, it is very little though, but I have had frogs in it  8)

Poured new frogs and tadpoles from my Dad's pond into my pond last week.

Meanwhile in the Midlands Smit's cat dragged soem frogspawn into his garden which he put into a container and he's now got 100's of tadpoles. Think I'll see if I can have those too. :D

Only problem is I think some of my newts eat some of my tadpoles. Naughty newts. >:(

They all eat each other - it's tadpole eat tadpole out there - newts definitely eat tadpoles, and I was amazed that a couple of years ago the tadpoles wiped out all of my sticklebacks; they might look cute but they are like mini piranha's and take a bite out of anything that swims past. So much for sticklebacks being the Great White Sharks of the pond.....
