Early spawn

A rogue clump of frog spawn appeared in our garden pond on 7th February. I say rogue clump because the spawning is usually quite synchronised, but so far there have been no other clumps to join it - and little frog activity in the evenings.

This is the earliest date we've seen spawn since digging the pond in 2009, and quite surprising given the recent chilly weather. Previous first dates have ranged from 14th Feb (2013) to 27th Feb (2010 and 2012). I expect there'll be some more to join it during the latter half of this month.
