Frogspawn has hatched

Sunday, March 21st 2010

The frogspawn taken into the classroom for the children to see has hatched! This morning there were hundreds of tiny tadpoles in the tank. Some were free swimming, but most were still attached to the jelly and are only about 6-8mm long.


In the scrapes there is plenty of spawn, but it will take a while longer before it hatches.

Earlier this week the Askham Bryan students planted some Hazel and Rowan trees which had been kindly donated to the reserve. As the end of March designates a cut-off point for successful tree planting, they have gone into the ground just in time.
