Saw a female GCN last night, can't be sure if it's the missing one as it looks a bit bigger/fatter, could have just gone for a feed in the rain or scoffed the tadpoles. Whichever, I'm glad to see her but strangely the male GCNs don't seem interested in her, perhaps she's too young or something, usually all the males are sniffing round. I don't really need a gay female GCN.
Just having a look in the pond in the bright sunshine and I saw a small GCN. It looked about 3 months old but black, not spotted and it still had gills, must be a late developer from last year, I've had it with tadpoles when there has been a large spawning, they have gone on to develop normally, I hope this one does.
