i discovered a lot of frog spawn in the pond behind our office today. so exciting, especially when you consider we are right in the centre of swansea!
Nice one Sue. That's the tax office I take it?
not quite .. but not far away either. :)
First lot of frogspawn in the pond today, in Brynmill, Swansea. Out of interest, the first sightings here over the last few years have been2011 11 Feb2010 15 Feb2009 14 Feb2008 22 Jan2007 3 Feb2006 12 Feb The newts will be ok for their favourite food- froggy tadpoles- once again.
just thought you'd be interested to know ... i went out to check on the frog spawn today and found a lot more, including quite a bit in the grass surrounding the pond which i have moved into the water. i hope that was the right thing to do. seems our frogs are very busy this year!
where can i take the children to see some frogspawn, as they are learning about it in school. which pond is it please, is it Fendrod Lake or the Pluck?
Sue, seems like you've probably done the right thing. Frogs often lay eggs in the most unexpected places, some of which are totally unsuitable!Anon, I suggest that you have a recce at some ponds local to your school. Almost any small pond that does not have fish in it stands a good chance of having frog spawn in it. Try and avoid the bigger ponds as you are much less likely to find frogs here.
PS. Brynmill Anon - some interesting records there. Looks like 2011 spawning is a fairly typical date at your site. Many thanks for posting here.
thanks, barry. i live in Plasmarl. is it still water that has more chance of having frogspawn than fast flowing streams? i dont drive so Brynmill park is a bit far. the children are off today and very enthusiastic to find some and take some photos.
