Frogs are back in the ponds! I checked my records and this is just one day earlier than they arrived here last year. I’m sure you know that the males are smaller than the females, and cling to the backs of females during the mating season. So many can attempt to mate with a female that it is not unheard of for females to be drowned during this time. Listen out for the males croaking at night, attracting females to mate with. Conditions: A dull rainy start with sunny intervals predicted later. Temperature: Max 9- Min 1c.IMG_7244IMG_7258
