More Frogspawn - 18/03/2017

It looks like the frogs have been
busy again laying more frogspawn.

The bug hotel is looking weathered now:

Frogspawn - 16/03/2017

I counted at least seven frogs
 in my pond last night,
with four of them paired up together.

Before I went to work this morning
I had a quick look in the pond to see if 
any frogspawn had been laid overnight.

Yes, freshly laid frogspawn and tiny too.

When I returned home from work
I went back to the pond with my phone
and took a couple of photos for my blog.

It looked more like frogspawn now
as it had swollen since I last saw it.

Frisky Frogs - 26/02/2017

As I sat and looked out the kitchen window yesterday on yet another wet miserable day I wondered if I'd get frogspawn again this year and if so, whether it would come earlier due to the milder winter weather.

This afternoon after dinner, having washed the dishes I decided to brave the wind and rain to put the bins out and top up of the bird feeders with sunflower hearts seeing how the Goldfinches had polished it all off yesterday.

After topping up the feeders I thought I'd have a quick look in on the pond and that's when I noticed something under the water. At first I thought it was a dead frog but when I looked closer I realised that there were in fact two frogs and they weren't dead but were hard at work.

I raced back into the house, grabbed my camera and was able to take a few quick shots for my blog. 

It looks like I might be
getting frogspawn again after all.

Fingers crossed it
stays mild until Spring.
