Our pond (about 3 cu metres) is a year old. Last spring we were given frog spawn and enjoyed following the development of the young frogs.
This year we were delighted to discover we had 2 separate clumps of 'home-grown' frog spawn, giving hundreds of tiny tadpoles.
Within a short period of time, all the tadpoles seemed to disappear. We have not found any 'floating dead', so can only assume that they have perhaps been eaten.
What might have caused this disaster?
