Frog Spawn is Back!

Whilst you are clearing up after 'Storm Doris', have a glance in your garden ponds and elsewhere.

Frog Spawn has already been spotted in Tattenhall – a good 3 weeks earlier than we reported last year!

Look out for large clumps of eggs which will be clearly visible in your garden pond. Whilst this might seem excessive, it ensures that not only does some spawn survive, but that some of the tadpoles might actually become froglets.

It is estimated that only 1/50 of the eggs laid will actually make it to froglet stage.

Regrettably, the impact of our modern agricultural practices, the loss of ponds and increases in amphibian disease mean that our native frog is no longer that 'common'.
