Betty Wright spotted big clumps of frog spawn in the old curling pond in Gearrchoille Wood.
David reckons there may be as many as 13 separate clumps in this photo.
Please let The Field Club know if you see local frog spawn in February or March.
As always – for readers who live in the Tain, Ross-shire area - we are interested in frog spawning dates. If the weather warms up even slightly we could have spawn in the next week. Please check you local pond, and report to TDFC here on the website or by e-mailing TDFC@dsl.pipex.com.
With this winter season never getting very cold and the warmer weather approaching looking in your usual frog spawn pools should start soon. If you see frog spawn please let us know here by adding a comment below or use our facebook page to tell us when and where in the Tain area, and in the district, newly laid frog spawn has been found.
Please be as specific as possible about the site where you have found new frogspawn this year. If there are relevant comments or observations please include those – for instance, my usual pool has overgrown so as to be virtually dry.
Please let us know of early sightings of frog spawn in Sutherland or Ross-shire.
Please report your first sighting this year and where that was.
If you are checking for early frog spawn and want to report it please add a comment below with date and location with these details, (minimum essentials shown in bold):
