Warning Not To Move Frogspawn

Conservationists are urging people not to carry out "frogspawn-swapping" this spring because of problems they say it can create for the pond environment.

Wildlife-lovers in the UK often donate frogspawn from their ponds to others to give frogs a potential new home.

But the Froglife charity said this could lead to the spread of invasive plants and harmful diseases.

Scientists say the best way to populate ponds is by making them frog friendly and letting nature take its course.
