Spring on Hold

The bit of warm weather was short lived. Plenty of gusty cold wind and temperature back to single figures for much of the time. That didn't stop the frogs which continued to produce their spawn:

Frog Spawn 2529

It looks as though there are about sixteen lots in the garden pond. This should continue to develop when the temperature starts to rise again.

When I was checking through the video clips I took of the newt attacking the first batch of frog spawn I could see there were two of them. A male and a female:

The male with his light coloured belly with black spots can just be see towards the top right of the clip which I have slowed down.


  1. Wow... that's a busy garden pond you have there, John! Great images :-)

  2. looks like you're going to have a good year for frogs!

  3. It's good to see so much activity.

  4. Just amazing, John ~ It will be interesting to see if there is any room in the pond for anything else once the tadpoles take over!


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
