I have been keeping a sharp eye out for my first frogspawn of 2017, and was finally rewarded yesterday afternoon on the meadows bordering the River Stour in Sudbury. The clump had gathered a fair amount of plant material, but despite the bits of weed and reed, the embryo tadpoles were clearly visible.
I have logged the sighting here (#SpawnSurvey).
This part of the town was looking particularly lovely with Mallards in the water, a Willow coming into leaf and plenty of Daffodils on the bank.
- I had a hunch I was a bit late this year. This link will take you to spawn I saw in Felixstowe in 2014, much earlier in March...
We don't get frogs in town, more toads, and this year newts! You've got a very big collection of spawn there, as does my boss who is having to explain to her 4 and 7 year olds why there are three frogs on top of each other...
Hello, we are a little behind here in Maryland! Love the ducks! Happy Monday, enjoy your day and the week ahead!
Fantastic and I just love the scene in your second photograph.
Good wishes for Spring
All the best Jan
