I think my Frogs have sensed the imminent return of winter :cold2: . I could detect no activity in or around the ponds today. :(

Now the thaw has arrived I took the opportunity to get rid of the pack ice which had formed on my ponds which was over an inch thick in places. I soon became apparent that the "disappeared" Frogs had been underwater for the duration of the big freeze. The very cold water seems to put them into a kind of stupor but a short while after the "bergs" had been removed they started to stir again. :) :frog: :frog: :frog:

The first blob of spawn appeared today :) Meanwhile elsewhere in the ponds I spotted about fifteen Frogs, some in couples the remainder bachelors.
I decided to get rid of the last bags of dead leaves from last autumn today and found three junior frogs about a quarter size of an adult. The breeding program is going well :nod: :frog: :frog: :frog: :frog:
