No free swimming Tadders thus far as they are busing consuming their birth jelly.

Lovely. We almost have independent tadlets :).

The tadpoles are growing well. The newts are still eating them but having little impact on the numbers. :)

I am having to feed the Tadders now. Cheap and cheerful pond fish food has proved very acceptable and disappears rapidly. :)

:yummy: :munch: Great news, Jacksparrow. (Just make sure there's no 'wheat' in the food :(.)

While trawling for duckweed in the small pond I accidently caught the first four legged tadpole for this year. It still had it's tail but the conversion from tadpole to froglet is nearly complete. :)

I still have plenty of tadpoles some of which seem to have remained small but today I have seen three Froglets in the garden. I am delighted that we have a result after the "beast from the east" came very close to killing all the spawn. The little frogs have a long battle to survive to adulthood but they have got past the most dangerous stage. :frog: :frog: :frog: :woohoo:
