The tadpoles have hatched in my pond. These little ones are sunning themselves in the warm shallows. No, those are not legs or arms sticking out of their sides, but gills. That’s what they breathe with before they metamorphose into air-breathing amphibians.

Strangely, a new dollop of Frogspawn appeared this morning. Someone was a bit late for the main spawning last month, or maybe it’s more than a coincidence that it is a full moon!?
