Hello,

I have just discovered some kind of spawn in my pond, it doesn;t have obvious egg-like bubbles in it and seems to be mingled in with the pond weed. Any ideas what it might be?

Thanks!

could still be frog spawn as it can be mingled in when just laid but is usually in a mass, whilst toad  spawn tends to be in strings so could be that. try looking up images of both types on google images.

I live just outside Portsmouth and counted up to 50 frogs in my garden pond with loads of big patches of frog spawn its been there about a week now its not a huge pond  sbout 8x10  but to get to the point isnt this very early for frog spawn.

We live in the Portsmouth area and came across a couple of mating frogs in our tiny barrel pond,..... I do believe this to be early.

My garden diary says my pond had first frog spawn on the 26th feb last year! May not survive but it shows they think it's warm enough.
