Re: FROGS

Very little sign of frogs now. I think that is the fastest spawning season ever. It had no sooner started but was done and dusted.

Is that number down or up on other seasons.
I think that is less than I have come to expect but I think there were fewer frogs than last year.

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

There was a female Blackbird collecting nest material today. She flew off into a neighbour's conifer. :blackbird:

Re: FROGS

It looks like the peak of the spawning has passed. We have about 6 different blobs of spawn and the number of visible frogs has decreased.

All of it? or just a good cutting down?
About two or three feet left behind. It will take a while to recover but it will happen.

Re: FROGS

Frogs have started to arrive for spawning. Only a couple at present but if this mild weather continues it will ramp up quickly. :frog: :frog: :love:

Re: TREES

The old hazel has now gone. The birds do not seem to be bothered about it's absence.

Perhaps you need to take a leaf out of farmers book. In the hedges they cut it every year.
Yes, the bloke who's doing the cutting down has already told me that :prod:
