According to the Freshwater Habitats Trust, ponds support an extraordinary two thirds of all freshwater species including frogs, toads,diving beetles, damselflies and plenty more besides but there’s been a huge decline in the number and quality of ponds around the UK. You can help by making your own and giving a home to some of those species – the Trust’s great how-to guide is full of good tips. You might even want to contribute to their Milllion Ponds Project. In any case we look forward to hearing how you get on! This month’s Ta(l)king Action event is a chance to learn more from fellow Yorkies.
You will find more tips of the week on this page.
