The pond is still full of frogs.

The frogs have now laid a great deal of spawn in the pond and whereas previously they were 'shy' in the daylight, diving for cover if you approached, they now seem quite relaxed, perhaps pleased with themselves. The males are still clambering, en masse, over the females that have anything left to offer but eh croaking is reducing and in a few days it will be all quiet again with the developing spawn the only remaining sign of this seasonal event. I have also seen a number of toads crossing the road this week,  on my cycle home up the back lane each evening.
