Frog Spawn

Observed: 14th March 2011 By: Sue HendrieSue Hendrie’s reputation in Amphibians and ReptilesSue Hendrie’s reputation in Amphibians and Reptiles
Description:

A good, healthy looking batch of frog spawn which, hopefully, this year will survive. Last year the water level dropped & the spawn dried out before it could be saved.

Still waiting!

Here on Teesside: a lone female in my garden pond has been patiently hoping for company. A lone male was with her this morning, in amplexus, but no spawn yet.

Good luck!

The frogs around here seem quite healthy but my mother, down in Sussex, has had no spawn in her pond for a couple of years now after her local frogs died off seemingly from a virus.
