I have just received the first email of the year to tell me of frogs spawning in Gravesend on Thursday 16th February – thanks Peter. The male frogs in our garden started calling about 10 days ago but the cold weather soon put an end to that. They have started again now but, as yet, no spawn. I think this is one of the garden highlights of the year – perhaps just topped by seeing the first brood of house sparrows. Anyway, do let me know if you have frogs spawning -where and when.
Toad sightings would be good too.
If you are coming to the next Tuesday indoor meeting also don’t forget your best sightings for the Garden Birdwatch – blackcaps, nuthatch, siskin etc. Please no pheasants!
Thanks to Sally for the photograph.
