Stories From A Sunken Bucket
'During the past 100 years, the countryside has lost almost 70% of it’s ponds, resulting in the critically damaging reduction of a major form of habitat' Wildlife Gardening for Everyone via the RHS & The Wildlife Trust

Swoopers, surface suckers and pluckers to a pond may include:
Remembering also, frogs, toads, newts (60cm depth), and birds.
We have a wildlife pond at the allotment, and one planned for our garden too.
In the meantime, inspired by Surrey Wildlife Trust and #30dayswild we have begun to create a pond in a bucket.
Pictured closeby, are blackcurrants, blackberries, thyme, lavender, a crab apple tree and freshly sown Purple Teepee Dwarf Beans.
Can you share any stories from the pond?
Because everyone has one.
