Frog Spawn in Bird Bath

We have a small pond but no spawn in there, however when I went to fill up the birth bath today with rain water, I noticed spawn in there. Is it normal for spawn to be high up?

    move it into the pond with a jug before the tadpoles hatch. I doubt they would survive in the bird bath for long

    They spawn in my daughters outside loo.

    Some don't even manage water.... :D

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • Oh, I think you are extremely lucky, I have built a shallow pond in the hope of getting some frogspaw, but nothing so far....

    Isn’t that toad spawn @Fairygirl. It look a bit like it’s in strings?
