the frogs have arrived!

Went outside to check the pond in the usual amphibian surveyor way (i.e with a torch after dark). And the first common frog Rana temporaria was found right in the middle of the pond.

Less than a year old and frogs have been attracted to the pond. Admittedly they have not bred in the pond this spring but this may be the case in 2012. The onslaught unleashed by the tadpoles in Jeremy Biggs garden pond was quite something.

The frog was possibly after some food such as the moth pictured taking a drink.
