Does anyone have much frog spawn in their garden pond or seen much in the locality? I have a wildlife pond but no spawn and am concerned for frogs locally. I would particularly like to hear from anyone who might have spare spawn as the more ponds we can establish with frog colonies the better.

Forum fact of the day - I learn that there are two types of local frog, the common frog and the (brought-in and increasing) marsh frog. See the link about marsh frogs in Offham Marshes and Lewes Brooks.

We have some in our pond first year ever. But can it be transported easily between ponds? We tried previously but found the imported spawn did not develop and ended up being eaten by fish

Better to Keep it in a bucket of the original pond water. Only adding very small amounts of the new destination water Over a period, so there is no drastic difference of temperature

Fish and frogspawn/tadpoles don't mix. One or the others. Frogs, sadly, too dim to check. Mind you, lots of other critters eat tadpoles too, not just goldfish. Starting with protected Great Crested Newts, which have driven the frogs out of my pond.

Hundreds of frogs at here at East Hoathly. Do remember frogs are protected so leave spawn alone.

Thank you for the offers. My pond is fish free and transferring spawn would help the species. My number is 07969889965. Please call or text me and tell me where and when I can collect some. I have 2 neighbours, also with fish free ponds who are also without spawn so the more, the better.

I can honestly say that this is without doubt, the most amount of frogspawn i've ever seen in my life. They started spawning around the middle of feb and are sill spawning now. It's like a Roman orgy at times.

I can't see any harm with taking spawn from friends' ponds if they have masses, but please don't take from the wild.

Good to hear that frogs are doing well in some places even if not in my road. No one has contacted me so far to offer any of the spawn in their garden so if anyone does feel able to, please use the number on my earlier post. It should help to allow a wider distribution of frogs.

If anyone has some frog spawn to spare I would love some. I made a wildlife pond in the Autumn and have been watching and waiting for some frogs to appear and lay some but nothing yet. Iím in Hollingbury, Brighton and can pick up any time.
