Has anyone seen any frog spawn yet?

Options
There's a little bit of frog spawn in the pond on the allotment and today noticed lots of frogs frolicking in my pond. Though goodness knows where they all come from cos they certainly haven't been earning their keep in my garden by eating all the slugs! Has anyone else seen any spawn?

    No frogspawn but when I was fishing yesterday the coots were mating like mad, either that or they were trying to drown each other.

    Yep, our coots are at it too. And lots of nest building starting. We have some bramble to attack and if we don't do it this weekend i think we might have lost our chance for nesting season this year.

    Loads of very noisy frogs here (SW) & tons of spawn. They're late this year which is strange given it's been milder than the last few.
    The toads have normally surfaced by now but no sign of toad spawn yet.

    I saw frog spawn in a large puddle near a field runoff in the Peak District on Sunday - the week before the puddle had been frozen solid so the frogs have been busy! Also frogs are wakening up and preparations have started for the annual frog event in our pond in Cheshire - I love this time of year.
