Frogspawn and tadpoles

Spring wouldn’t be spring without frogspawn and tadpoles. We’ve got some on the kitchen windowsill and that makes them easy to photograph. Here are a few video clips to show them developing.

Here they are, about a week later, just about to come out of their spawn

It didn’t take long, the very next day they were out of their spawn. You can see their little gills developing to absorb oxygen from the water.

The image at the top is a batch of them ready to be released into the pond.
