    Are you sure it's toad spawn? Toads have long strings as opposed to lumps of spawn like frogs.

    I would love to have toads here but I've never seen any in over 3 years. Used to see them regularly in my previous garden.

    Yes it will be frogs spawn. I get toad spawn in my pond and it is in long strings wrapped around plants.
  • Hi guys 

    Yes you are all right its frog spawn and its a good cluster at that.  I got slight confused as we have had a number of toads around the garden in recent weeks thinking it was those.   Well fingers crossed they all do well .

    Maybe the toads are checking out the area once the frogs have left!
