First frog spawn of 2010

Yesterday I was really pleased to see a clump of frog spawn in the pond. The appearance of frog spawn is slightly earlier than last year (18th March) and later than both of the previous years (3rd March and 23rd February). Sorry for the arty photo 🙂

This morning I was even more pleased to see two more clumps of spawn. This is the most we’ve ever had in the pond.

One big difference this year was the presence of adult frogs in the pond. We’ve rarely seen adult frogs in the garden but there were ten or more adult frogs in the pond today.
