Frogspawn Update

 This year (2022), frogspawn appeared in our small garden pond on or about the 23rd March. Generally, froggie parents disappear once the eggs have been laid though they may hang around in smaller bodies of water - where else would they go? There was evidence (a splash as you approached the pond) of a frog but we did not get a good look until the 16th April when a common frog was seen sitting close to/on the remaining frogspawn. As they are not known as caring parents, he/she may just have been enjoying the warm sunshine (temperatures of 22/23 ℃ that afternoon).

Parent frog guarding its eggs (16/4/22)?

There is plenty of tadpole activity so, hopefully, a successful breeding season!?
