Frog Spawn

Today we went to check how the spawn, found a few weeks ago in the northern most square pond, was progressing, not very well, most of it is out of reach but the one clump we did lift up was nearly bare of any tadpoles and full of leeches having a good feast.

At this stage they are easy prey, and the only advantage is the number of clumps.

A Little Egret has been on the long pond for a few weeks now, see photo.
