Frogspawn & Caterpillars

Estimated 15 clumps of frogspawn in a pond on top of Crow Hill, Sowerby and 2 Fox Moth Caterpillars? on Aaron Hill. No spawn in the small ponds on Aaron Hill where I’ve seen it before although these have a tendency to dry out by early summer.


  1. Plenty of spawn in my ponds, first spotted 12th March, earlier than last year.

  2. Nice to get some Fox Moth cat's Mick
