We have Frogspawn in our Office Pond
The frogs have been busy in the office pond, on Wednesday and Thursday we were able to count up to seven frogs in the pond, but no spawn until this morning. We have just spotted the first batch of spawn, which must have been laid last night, despite the clear skies leading to a drop in air temperature to just above freezing.
When we compare notes from previous years, the frogs have spawned two days earlier this year than they did in 2010. So far we have not seen as many frogs in the pond as last year but we are confident that more spawning will take place and that we may well end up with as much frogspawn as we did last year. This is the fourth year in a row that we have had frogs spawning in our office pond.
