Sunny Soil Hill jamieharrop2012-03-11T17:51:00+00:00March 11th, 2012|0 Comments One of two Roe Deer galloping up the N slope of Soil Hill Today Frogs and their spawn were very much in evidence in a number of different locations on the hill. I counted about 15 frogs but there were far more splashes from those I didn’t see. No Comments Brian Sumner .

Steve Blacksmith March 14, 2012 at 11:38 pm - Reply Hi Nigel,Great pics inc the hare! Frogs are usually monitored by counting the clumps of spawn – so 3 females laid the 3 clumps in the pic. As the spawn soaks up water they become less distinct, but it's still usually possible to get a rough estimate. All such records gratefully received here. Toads are counted individually as their spawn strings all get tangled up together, so are no good for monitoring. Luckily toads move slower!
