There doesn't seem to be much frog spawn this year in my local ponds. Have other people noticed this or is it just me?

There's some progs spawn in new garden ponds here in Barcombe. But I'm always puzzled why there Is so little in the river, streams and ditches roundabout and why frogs and frogspawn seems so much more prevalent in friends ponds in Brighton. Currently Barcombe seems to be the warzone between the native frogs and the invading, noisy and more robust European Marsh Frogs, which march on and see our smaller native frogs off. The marsh frogs really are very noisy and some villagers complain of being kept awake by them.

I have quite a lot of frog spawn in my fish pond - where the frogs came from I just don't know !! Must have at least a dozen adult frogs - I'd have some frog legs for supper if I could just catch the blighters !!

I used to have ponds, strange thing is that if you dig a hole in the ground in the middle of nowhere, fill it with water, within a few months at most you will have frogs. Where do they come from? It's one of mother natures mysteries.

Do frogs die after mating ? We have several frogs in our pond, but one appears to have been exhausted/killed off/ put in coma by the effort of weeks of clinging to its mate and producing loads of frog spawn.
