Our tadpoles are hatching

A bit of wriggling was noticed in the spawn...on further investigation some tadpoles had already broken free.

Please record you spawn clumps at Pond Conservation's Big Spawn Count

You can record your Lancashire, and especially Fylde, amphibians and reptiles here

Frogs galore and our first toads

Devonshire Road Rock Gardens in Blackpool are Frog heaven at the minute with well over 100 spawning in the top pond and quite a few struggling to spawn in the currently empty lower pond.

Today FARG members Dave and Raf went off along the North Blackpool Pond Trail in search of  a reported Marsh/Pool Frog, a very unusual sighting for these parts. No  joy but the year's first Toads , all small 2 year  olds were found.

Please record your Fylde amphibian and reptile sightings here. Pond Conservation would also like your spawn counts.
Enjoy your recording
