First Frogspawn!

Monday, March 3rd 2014

It has been a beautiful early spring morning here at Foxglove. The sun has been shining, birds have been singing, and the first frogspawn of the year spotted!

As we walked across the reserve we were paying special attention to the ponds, hoping to spot some frogspawn. Passing the Sand Martin Colony, the males could be heard calling. Once we had crossed onto the island you could see the water was bubbling with activity!

This shallow, sunny spot is usually one of the first areas that frogspawn is found.

The frogs were as curious as us, popping their heads above the water to see what we were up to.

It really feels like spring is now on the way; it will not be long before the reserve is alive with the sound of croaking and washed in colour as flowers come into bloom!
