If you have a pond or plenty of natural cover you are quite likely to have frogs, toads and newts visiting from time to time, and maybe breeding - even if you live in the middle of a town or city.
If you are surveying amphibians in your garden, you should look for breeding colonies in ponds and in damp areas - such as under log piles, accumulated leaf litter or long grass - throughout the spring and summer months. Newts and young frogs and toads can sometimes be found in holes in walls and rockeries, or under paving slabs and plant pots.
