On a more somber note I only have about half the amount of spawn compared to last year and on the whole the weather has been better :(
I wonder what made the drop in numbers? :unsure:
:shrug: Plenty of frogs so I can only think there was an imbalance in the sexes.
Oh I didn't think of that, that might be it :unsure:

I had a surprise today when I found a late batch of spawn nearly six weeks after the first lot appeared in early March :)

:clap: How clever: a double-barrelled approach to the survival of the species :nod:.

For the most part I leave a third of the chateau grounds undisturbed and this leaves room for my froglets to grow in a safe environment away from my size nines clumping around. Yesterday I did a little rootling around in the safe area to get rid of some dominant weeds and grasses and disturbed a little frog which was clearly from the class of 2018. It was roughly twice the size of one that has just left the tadpole stage. It is good to know that all my nurturing is not a waste of time.

A good nurture never goes unrewarded, Jacksparrow :clap:. Good spot - it can teach the youngsters all the survival skills they'll need :). A sort of ranine Ray Mears.
