BBOWT’s photographer of the month is Peter Garner with this mysterious & beautiful photo of tadpoles taken in April at Stonepit Field in Milton Keynes. This is the perfect time of year to see tadpoles as frogs come to ponds to breed during the spring. However, due to human activity, including the drainage of land for agriculture and the loss of ponds through development, has resulted in the disappearance of many wetlands. This has taken its toll on wetland wildlife like frogs The Wildlife Trusts are working closely with planners, developers and farmers to ensure our wetlands are protected. You can help: encourage frogs and other amphibians into your garden by having a wildlife-friendly pond and leaving piles of logs for hibernating beneath. In partnership with the RHS, The Wildlife Trusts' Wild About Gardens initiative can help you plan your wildlife garden. We'd love to see your photos of wildlife through the seasons. Share them with us on Twitter and Facebook.
