Early Frogspawn 09 02 16

Some early Frogspawn in a Todmorden Garden Pond on 09 02 16,it's a bit earlier than last Year's in same pond which was seen on 16 02 2015,not really suprising the way the Temperatures have been recently !


  1. Thanks for that, Brian. You always get the earliest frogspawn up there at Todmorden ! Does that pond have a heater?

    I did get my earliest ever Willow Warbler near you at Portsmouth Fishing Lake - 4th April. (I know there have been earlier.)

  2. Hi Steve ,no the pond isn't heated,there are 3 ponds unheated in this same Garden,and the 1st Spawn is always in the Lower one,which are stream fed from off the hills.regards Bri.
