Help us to find the Forest of Dean's hidden ponds and lakes and discover what's in them!

Hidden away in the Forest of Dean are many small ponds and lakes, some, so well hidden they are known only to a few who stumble upon them when out for a walk. We would like to build a picture of the condition of these ponds, and one way to do this is to record what is found in them.

"Amphibians such as frogs, toads and newts are good indicators of the health of a pond. said Rosie Kelsall, Forest of Dean Community Wildlife Officer.

"We need you to tell us where you see frog and toad spawn we can plan the future of these ponds and how best to look after them."

We also want to know about the ponds in your community, your garden, your school grounds, village green etc where frog and toad spawn are found. We have set up a form to make it easy to add your pond info here https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1cJs8ppoum-HHg8JerXzWTl8iBgVAJO_IpdFaVjKPiIk/viewform

This is part of the Heritage Lottery Funded Landscape Partnership Scheme which aims to create a network of wildlife habitats throughout the Forest of Dean.
