  • "Scotland's first hotel for frogs has been built, to help stop the amphibians croaking as predators strike. Frogs are particularly vulnerable at this time of year, when they gather at ponds to mate. So volunteers at Redhall Walled Garden in Edinburgh have built a special shelter for the creatures, where they can hide from attack from birds and other predators.

    ...

    Frogs are encouraged to hop through a drain pipe into the three-storey hotel, made from bits of wood from the nearby area. An underground vault has been lined with rotting wood, to turn it into what the volunteers are calling a 'compost café', where bugs gather and can be munched on by the frogs. It is hoped they will then climb a ramp inside the hotel to make use of a drier upper tier where they can relax in peace, away from predators."
