Frog Spawn

I’m not really sure whether I've just missed this event or our garden frogs are a little late with their frog spawn because of the cold weather.
We see frog spawn every year in our pond but never manage to see any tadpoles or baby frogs. We always assume that the fish eat the frog spawn although at the moment the level of fish activity is almost non existent. I’m assuming the fish are remaining low in the water waiting for it to warm up a little. The frogs have laid their spawn in a very vulnerable position as its very close to where the blackbirds enjoy bathing. We’ll have to see what happens.

There’s still a little bit of snow from last week hanging about in the garden. A little bit more melts each day. This conifer by the pond will soon be snow free.
