I have had some more frogspawn in the last few days while the earlier lot seems to be suspended in time and hasn't developed very much - waiting for warmer weather like the rest of us...
I, however, haven't seen a single toad this year (so far). They usually spawn a couple of weeks after the frogs but so far not a single toad, never mind strings of eggs. My newts are now active and hopefully they are 'doin' their thing'.
I don't think a visiting heron and now a pair of mallards from the local park is helping with frog/toad/spawn survival much either this year!
