4th February for our first frog spawn.




4th February and our first frog spawn in the garden pond. Exactly the same date as 2014 !

I know friends who have seen it weeks ago but our pond seems to be following a trend.

I've been expecting it any day as it's been "Croak City" out there for the past few evenings. I even found 3 frogs having fun in the dogs drinking bowl!

Not convinced that you can read anything into weather conditions and temperatures making much difference as previous years have been similar and yet it's been a pretty normal winter.

Here are the past few years dates for first spawning:-

2016....25th Jan.
2015....29th Jan.
2014....4th Feb.
2013....27th Jan.
2012....14th Jan.
