After my post of yesterday I thought I'd seen a lot of life in the pond. However, yesterday evening at about 8.00 o'clock I was aware of some considerable amount of frog noise coming from the pond. I very quietly and carefully opened the door and, with torch in hand, was amazed at the swirling bubbling movement in the pond. This went on for some considerable time and at 21.45 I counted 22 frogs, mostly in pairs but just a couple of ménage à trois - and the noise.....
Utterly amazing and I was so delighted to be able to witness this - and almost from my armchair.
(I've never known there to be as many frogs as this before. I do wonder, however, if this may be the result of my neighbours' getting rid of their pond last summer!)
This frantic frenzy of froggy frolics was still in full flight when I went to bed at about 10.30 last night.
So yesterday this was the picture during the day:

and this morning -
well, you can see by these results that my froggy friends have been rather busy! Lol
