First Spawn - 19th February

Its 9.30 am on a frosty morning and as I fed the chickens and defrosted the rabbit water I noticed that the frogs have produced their first spawn of the year. I can clearly hear the frogs at night this weekend as I lie in bed, croaking away in the dark. If they are still here all week I might try to record them as Adam and I were discussing the sounds that mark the different points of the year and this is certainly one of them.

I had a conversation with someone last year who said that there are 'marsh frogs' in a specific ditch on the levels so I might go to try to find them at night with a torch as I'm not sure I've ever seen a marsh frog.
