Braved the soupy weather for a little fishing, critter hunting and apparently frog nursery disruption. Tadpole watch here we go again!

A quick nursery update my first offspring are 4months & growing fat on flies/aphid/bean weevils/the odd waxwork. They’re looking for new homes too .

The jungles coming on! The second video, I couldn’t resist, having a poke around to see if the drop off had been successful, and yes, so proud of my parents…it would seem we’re all getting something right 🤗

Look carefully there’s a tadpole on board!!!!
So lucky to catch them in the act…dropping the kids off at the pool. Except I interrupted with dinner, so junior swim had to wait will mum or dad had their fill of flies. .

The tadpoles are getting quite big now. #tadpolewatch

The pond is bubbling in some sort of tadpole feeding frenzy. This is the pond that started the Small’s tadpole obsession last year when we were viewing this house. She didn’t even look inside but was adamant that we were going to buy the house with the pond. Turns out she was right! #tadpolewatch #wedonthavetohavetheminthekitchenthisyear #theoldrec #pondlife #suffolk

We've been enjoying the beautiful spring weather 💚🌷🌼🌱☀️🐸🐝🐛🦋🐞 #tadpolewatch

A good few tadpoles have survived, so rather than keep them captive I thought it best to release them. There’s also a good few survived in the pond too which is ace. Three adult frogs chilling at the edge, hoping they look after these babies! 🐸

#wildgarden #naturepond updates! #wildflower seedlings are springing up well and tadpoles are having a great time 😎 #tadpolewatch #naturegarden

Nursery update…as you can see five lively healthy active froglets. They’re a few months apart in age, gobbling up melanogaster, springtails and pea aphids all covered in quality supplements. These kid’ll be looking for new homes soon.

I'm very pleased and excited to report the frogger spawn 🐸 has hatched!!! We now are properly into #tadpolewatch !! 😀 me harvested from last years #wildflower seed is doin well, nothing from the new stuff yet but I did sow it late as the ground needed working and fence painting but any day now the #wildgarden should be sprouting all over 👍
Also look at me #strawberryplants (in the square to stop doggo piddling on them) I propagated last year! 🍓 and front right black tub is my #blueberrytree and behind him the shorty #appletree 🍎 (can't see it but its there I promise) and front left black tub is my #ribenaberry 😉 #blackcurrantbush 😀
This sun wants to hang around as almost all the muds has gone ready for greenhouse foundations, seriously I never thought this day would come!! #ilovemygarden #hellosunshine 🌞 #naturegarden
Also #windspinnercrew @chris_gardening_growing !! Mine got battered in winter and lost the bug end but I patched it up 😂 going to hit up pound land soon for all the garden niknaks!!

The garden is coming along nicely 😊 and the froggers have left me another surprise this morning!! I've sown my #wildflower seed in the #wildgarden so now we wait.
Him wanted you all to see the manhole cover he found, apparently that's his escape hole from me, he's so funny 😐

Yesterday I went to put down the pond plants kindly sent by @rceebear and the lump of #frogspawn on the right made me happy so today I decided to go get a picture ready for #tadpolewatch and the lump on the left has appeared!!! I have #ALLtheexcites!! I love watching the little froggers 🐸 grow!!
Just need the sun 🌞 to come back out again so I can enjoy a day in the garden without freezing please 😂

We found SO MUCH fresh frog spawn up the Dublin Mountains this morning. It'll be interesting to check in on how they progress as we head back up the hills every weekend for the next few months prepping for the #dublinmountainschallenge. Has anyone ever taken frog spawn into school?? #dublinmountains #dublinmountainsway #frogspawn #tadpolewatch #teacherlife #irisheducation #lifecycleofafrog #seomraranga #irishprimaryteacher #iteachtoo

After 10 years finally got some frog spawn in the pond #hopingthefishdonteatitall #tadpolewatch #babyfroggies

Does size matter? I’ve a fly question I’m culturing Hydei & melanogaster. Do they have the same nutritional value, pound for pound? They’re being raised on the same medium. Thanks in advance. .

The three kids, there not the smartest frogs as you can see. I’ll have to tell them that just cos they can’t see me, doesn’t mean I can’t see them or that pea aphids are to eat & not to wear!! .

Advice please, this is my first tad approaching its time to leave the water. What’s the best way forward…reduce the water level & place an object that it can rest on to keep its head out of the water? .

Anyone got a name for this little plant. I helped myself to a covert clipping from the members lounge of the South Bank Centre in central London. It looks so pert & happy in it’s new home! .

Pulled these out from a film pot today, they were spawned just over 2 weeks ago. I’d checked them a week ago and saw the embryonic tadpoles. Any ideas why they’ve failed? All advice welcome….

Respect to the Clean up Crew! For their fearless & silent support in environmental sustainability. A role fraught with danger, custodian to dinner’s only ever a tongues flick away. To the woodlice & springtails that give so much, I thank you all. .
