Frogsporn ...

West Sussex, 8 March 2013

Overnight, and exactly a year to the day, my pond is once again awash with frogspawn.

I woke this morning to a mass of frantic sexual activity, with at least seven individuals taking part in this annual mating pilgrimage. Every year I keep watch for returning Common Frogs (Rana temporaria), their presence generally betrayed by their calling.

With heavy rain falling for most of today, I decided to keep my camera dry. The picture below was taken on 11 March 2012.

A positive sign of spring ...
