Tadpoles already?

I've only had frogspawn for about 5 days, the most recent laid on Saturday, here in Teesside. Your Hexham frogs are clearly a hardy bunch!

Supprised too

It was a shock to me too as I am normally way behind,I had photographed them in the stream then walked up the field and spotted these ones forming in a bog/sedge area so maybe the sedge has created a warmer spot.
