Common Frog

I'm cheating today because I am posting two pictures; one is of a Common Frog and the other is of frog spawn. At this time of year ponds, and other assorted wetlands, up and down the country have frog spawn in them. It's one of those first real signs of Spring that people look out for. In fact the Common Frog is one of the amphibian species that is recorded as part of the Nature's Calendar annual survey of phenology.

I had four moths in my garden light trap this morning, so a 400% increase on the night  before; three Hebrew Characters and a Double-striped Pug. So fingers crossed for another 400% increase tomorrow!
