Cosmeston Lakes. 25/03/2018

A nice bright and warm day Sunday with a few butterflies making an appearance around the park, a few male Brimstones patrolling the hedgerows with a Comma and a couple of Small Tortoiseshells enjoying the sun.

At the dragonfly pond to the left of the visitor centre there was an unwelcome guest in the form of a Terapin basking near the bank.

All around the pond there were Common Frogs looking for mates plus one or two already mating, there was a single patch of frog spawn in the pond but it looked like it had been killed off by the cold weather we have had as there was no movement from within.
