When I went to feed the fish this morning I saw this LARGE frog at the wall of the pond. one of the largest I have seen here. Anyway I thought they would all be hibernating at this time of year. If it is still there tomorrow I will try to relocate it to the wildlife pond as it can't be too easy getting out of where it is as there is an overhang all round the pond plus mesh covers.
Update. Today saw frog again with another one attached to it in flagrant delicto'? they are in the wrong pond for any spawn to survive so will have to keep a lookout and transfer to wildlife pond if I am in time.
Your frogs were well ahead of ours, spotted the first frogspawn today, it's actually the first we've had in the pond since we moved here. We had spawn in the pond at the other house a couple of times but the blackbirds/cats always used to manage eat it before/after it got as far as full sized frogs! This is quite a big ball with some sticking up out of the water so I hope it doesn't get too cold but it seems to go down quite a way so some should survive. Here's the 'tip of the iceberg' :-
Three of the baby frogs were in & around the pond yesterday, not sure how many have survived but there seem to be a few of various sizes ( only between about one & two inch long) around in the borders.
