Frog spawn update...

Post Brought forward from 03-03-10
A few more reports received of spawn, but also some negative reports so I guess there are still sites where Frogs are waiting for milder weather. I have also received a report of 6 Adders seen by Ruth and Malcolm Ridge in the bottom end Nicholaston Woods, all in a group together. Buff-tailed Bumble-bee seen by Veronica Shenston at Cwm Ivy yesterday, but no Frogs in her pond yet. Note that only the red dots show records for 2010.

Thanks for the update Barry! If anyone else sees any spawn could they possibly let the South and West Wales Amphibain and Reptile group (www.swwarg.co.uk) know please. Our native amphibains are facing an increasing number of pressures and it is essential that the areas where they spawn are recorded. thanks!
