Last week when the temperature rose, about 9 frogs had arrived at our wildlife pond and had started mating. By Saturday, 9 March the pond was full of frogspawn. Sadly since then it has been so cold the pond has been completely covered in ice and the frogs have disappeared. Will they mate again once the weather warms up as it would be such a shame to lose this years tadpoles? We did manage to get a few clumps out into a bucket and put it the shed, but this was after the pond had iced up. Hopefull there might be some frogs who haven't reached the pond yet as last year we had over twenty on the surface of the pond.
