Noticed a load in my pond the other day. The fish have their knives and forks ready for a feast!

The replies on this thread have surprised me, as I mentioned in the first post I live in the N/E, in fact as the crow flies about 7 miles from the Tees estuary. We're not exactly known for our mild & balmy weather! So I'm a little nonplussed that the Frogspawn in my area seems to be well advanced compared to more southerly & western area's (maybe I need to get out more :rolleyes: ) because the first batches of F/S in my pond are now out of the egg & wriggling like mad in anticipation of playing with the fish.

My frogs are normally as regular as clockwork,the earliest would normally be 10th February and the very latest one week later but so far this year we have absolutely none.

 

The frogs are still there but much quieter than usual.

 

I'm on the south coast near Bournemouth.

Blimey, I thought my lot had finished but there's a second wave of spawners come in.

 

At this rate I won't have to feed the fish till about June!!!! :D:D

You have my sympathies Phil, the frogspawn will definately need antifreeze up there!!

 

Incidentally, you're close to one of my all time favourite rivers for Grayling, the Teviot at Jedburgh..good memories of huge fish. :D:D

Still no frogspawn in west wales yet :( . No toadspawn, or newts for that matter.

 

Peter Mccue, you should try the Grayling fishing in the River Itchen in Hampshire some day. You would definitely not be disappointed.
