First Frogspawn of the "Spring!"



After a long week at work, it was really gratifying to see the first clump of frogspawn in our smaller garden pond. Whether, it will survive the return of winter over the next day or so, with gusty northerly winds, sleet and freezing temperatures forecast; remains to be seen.
The Marsh Marigolds are nicely in flower around our larger wildlife pond and provide a welcome splask of butter yellow to the area. As indicated in my previous post, bird activity has been very slow at present maybe because of the return of northerly winds and unsettled weather holding up early spring migrants.
