    Mine is still alive you can see the tails on the black dots in the frogspawn and they are wriggling so they are still OK.

    Mine are out and about and 1/2 an inch long. Squillions of them!  :)

    My next door neighbour gave me two clumps a couple of weeks ago. I only dig the pond in November and the plants are still tiny, but as their fish were eating the spawn I figured they at least stood a chance. I am obsessed now!

    Obsessed! Yes that's the word!  :D My knees are in bits from sitting crouched on a stone for days!!!
  • Likewise, I have zillions of taddies. I thought I would lose the spawn as it was laid just before the Beast from the East arrived but plenty have survived. Lots of food for the blackbirds when the tiny froglets leave the pond to explore dry land.

    Where I walk the dog there are old clay pits, you have to keep your eyes peeled when walking in the area in order not to tread on the tiny frogs. The ground is heaving with them.
