We have seen frog spawn in the wildlife garden pond! We know we have newts but it’s been a while since we’ve seen any frog spawn. Hopefully there will soon be little tadpoles swimming around.
Frog spawn survey
The sighting has been uploaded onto the annual PondNet Spawn Survey 2021.
The Freshwater Habitats Trust are asking for help collecting data on the whereabouts of frog and toad spawn across the country by taking part in their PondNet Spawn Survey 2021.
If you seen any frog spawn in your pond then please upload the sighting. Your survey findings will be fed into their WaterNet database that is freely available for Government bodies, NGOs and local people to download to feed into local wildlife plans and other surveys.
