A bit disappointing that we have had no frogspawn or toadspawn this year. I am a bit mystified by this as there are definitely frogs and toads about. There are plenty of common newts and EHS George has seen at least one Great Crested Newt which is on the endangered list.
Here are some photos taken two days before the video. This shows how quickly the water lily's come into bloom.
