Remaining Mild

Friday continued the mild start to the month. We had some reasonable sunny periods although it was a bit blustery at times. It clouded over late in the afternoon with enough cloud to allow a little light drizzle.

In the afternoon I made a little more progress preparing the base for the summerhouse. Approaching the pond I heard several “plops” as frogs headed to the bottom of the pond and safety. It wasn’t long before they surfaced again and I was treated to a chorus of croaking as I connected up my new pond filter.
Obviously I haven’t been the only one making good use of the mild weather. Usually virtually all this frog spawn is eaten by our fish, although this pile is laid in shallow water and it might be difficult for the fish to get at. Maybe this year we will have tadpoles and baby frogs. Watch this space for updates.

  1. We haven't had any frog spawn in our little pond yet, though I live in hope.
