Default Yippee Frog Spawn

Just wanted to share the good news :-)

Discovered a couple of clumps (if that's what you call it) of frog spawn in
my small pond. I was beginning to think my cats had managed to kill all the
adult frogs using my pond.

Its a beautiful morning and I have just checked the pond, a great dollop has
appeared overnight!
Isn't life grand?

I haven't any yet or is it too early here in Yorkshire?

I suppose it depends how high up you are, but we've got loads in Edinburgh.

We got ours (leeds) on 1 March, and have been getting extra clumps every
day since.

Default Yippee Frog Spawn

Here at SW Sheffield on the edge of the city at 225m high we saw our first
spawning on Tuesday 11 March together with a mass choir of 21 frogs croaking
away not counting those otherwise occupied on the bottom (especially the one
that had clamped itself to a dead fish). Today we still had about 6
stalwarts singing erratically while spread around the pond edge all facing
outwards. Whether they were hoping to welcome females or trying to
discourage enemies is anyone's guess.

We began with a couple of visiting frogs in 1998 when we put in a temporary
pond having just moved here and have built up to 30 to 40 visiting this
year.

I had seen frogs around for the previous 2 weeks at least despite the ice
still covering much of the pond.

The poor fish hide under the waterfall to avoid mass rape. Never mind, their
time will come. I move all the spawn to the top of three linked ponds but a
large percentage of the tadpoles still gradually go over the waterfalls
into the bottom pond. The fish soon realise that tasty morsels appear around
the water fall and hang around it again, this time with a fishy smile on
their faces.

Whereabouts are you in Yorkshire??

John
