Frog Spawn

I checked out the pond again today and there's about twice as much frog spawn now as there was a week ago. It's the most frog spawn I've seen in the pond's short life (build in 2003) so it's nice that the frogs have taken to is so quickly.

A lot of the spawn is in the shallow end and some of it is out of the water so I gently moved it along into slightly deeper water.

There's also a separate group of spawn in the deep end. It looks like I'll have to try to to rig up a fine mesh filter for the pond pump so we're not fishing tadpoles out of the filter again.

Spring!

I checked the pond today and saw that we now had some frog spawn. It must have arrived in the last couple of days as it wasn't there when I last checked on Thursday. I topped up the pond on Thursday as the water level had fallen a bit over the winter.

The frog spawn is in the shallow end again and the top layer is out of the water so as the level drops more of it will be exposed. I'll keep an eye on it and maybe see if I can move it into deeper water
