Thanks. I would have missed it too. Had to reach for the subtitiles button when the sound disappeared half way through - very annoying! Great to have Monty and Nigel back.

Thanks Forester. If you click on my picture to enlarge and then zoom in, you can see all the clumps of frogspawn - about 30 so far!

I counted 60 frogs in my pond this afternoon. I couldn't believe it! The noise they were making was very impressive as they all crooned along togather.Quite a sight, I'll try to upload some pics later.

For those with cat, fox or other animal problems....

Hi Vicki. The water scarecrow has  adjustable settings so that it will not affect birds if you don't want it to. It is approved by the RSPB (I think)
