Just seen the first frogspawn this year!
In a small local pond and was not there a couple of days ago.
Anyone else seen any yet?

    I saw some in our pond ( by the house ) about 3 weeks ago. Not sure how much has survived the freeze last week. 
    I've got some in the water lily " tanks" in the polytunnel too.
    I think @Lyn said she had some too
    Devon.

    Yes, spawned in January, silly things, we covered it with a large plastic sheet and a heavy sheet of ply wood, it seems to be alright despite the pond being frozen over for days. Then snow on the top.   Let’s hope.  They may lay again as it wasn’t a pond full.

    No sign of any here yet, I cleared the pond out a couple of days ago, I was glad to be able to get it done before the frogspawn appeared.
