Frog fans had a ribbiting time at an interactive workshop learning all about the water-dwelling hoppers.

Forest Farm Peace Garden, in Hazelbrouck Gardens, Hainault, hosted experts from charity Froglife to give residents tips and practical skills on how to make their allotments and gardens attractive to all sorts of wildlife, especially amphibians and reptiles.

The two-hour session on Wednesday afternoon also included educational activities and in-depth discussions.

Launched in 1989, Froglife focuses on conserving native amphibians and reptiles through national and regional projects such as conservation, environmental education and communication.
