Frog activity!!

It is the time of year when our garden becomes very popular.

We dug our pond in 1997 (2 x 2.5 m.) , and since then it has become a place of pilgrimage each spring.

At this time of year we walk down the garden slowly, and stand near the pond for a while.
If you wait about five minutes, the frogs all surface and start clambering over one another and grunting.

The best head count this afternoon was of 133 visible frogs, not counting the concrete one in the picture.

I cheated a bit.
This image was taken three years ago, but it was too dingy to get a picture this afternoon.

The first (and as yet only) two clumps of frogspawn appeared on Monday when there were only about 20 frogs apparently present.
