New Arrivals - Frogspawn

 First frogspawn sighting of 2022 (23rd March) in our small garden pond...

...or in close-up...

No sign of the parents!

The appearance of frogspawn is an annual event. Unfortunately, we haven't kept past records of first sightings; anecdotally, this year seems to be later than usual.

The arrival of frogspawn in the Spring is another example of phenology. You can record these events at Nature's Calendar, a citizen science project run by the Woodland Trust, where I have already recorded our first sightings of Snowdrop, Peacock & Comma butterflies, as well as Frogspawn.
