An East Sussex animal charity’s offering advice when it comes to tadpoles this Spring.

After concerns were raised for frogspawn spotted in a ditch in Hampden Park, East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service is saying moving it to safety, is relatively easy with a bucket.

However, Trevor Weeks from the charity says, “If you do move frogspawn or tadpoles, they should not be moved too far from where you found them, to avoid spreading diseases. There is an illness that frogs can get, which has a high mortality rate, which could be spread if tadpoles are moved too far.”
