Frogs as a sign of spring (and a small correction)

Just in case anyone’s looking at letters in the papers, it was, of course, a slip of the pen to say ‘frogs’ are mostly vegetarian.

I meant frog tadpoles (and there was a bit of poetic license in downplaying the meat eating tendencies as they get bigger!).

    No frog spawn but plenty of lesser water boatman flying and crawling in and out of a pond this afternoon under the (relatively) warm sun. Great to sight to see

    I live next to a very slow river and delight with the sounds of frogs in the evening! They are very important in keeping down mosquitoes!

    Our frogs finally produced spawn today. Far fewer frogs than usual (I’ve only counted 5), but a sizeable clump now adorns the garden pond. Photos over here: http://my.opera.com/Words/blog/2011/03/10/what-a-difference-a-day-makes
