Have you spotted any frogspawn lately? Enter your sightings at the Big Spawn Count records page. It’s also easy to share spawn sightings via Twitter with
@ARC_Bytes … the Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust.
Simply make a total count of the rounded clumps of frogspawn. Each is usually from an individual female frog – so this indicates how many females came to the pond to spawn. Remember to note the date, and where you saw them. Best to use a map, to get a grid reference (your co-ordinates).
Get a grid reference at Ordnance Survey ‘get-a-map’
Here’s a great web page to find an OS grid reference on a map – it takes seconds. Enter the place or postcode, click in the place you saw the frogspawn, and the map re-centres. The OS grid ref at the centre is shown below the map.
