Frog courtship

A lot more frogs have appeared in the pond. Difficult to count because they are easily disturbed and shoot of in all directions. There are several pairs and clumps off courting frogs. As to be expected there is also a lot more spawn, about 8 clumps in all, one being much larger.

As it got dark, the frog chorus started up and continued all evening. When I went outside to put the rubbish out (at about 10.00pm) I noticed that the sky looked rather spooky right out of a horror film.

It wasn't foggy so I can only assume that it was the lights from the sports stadium reflecting off the underside of very low cloud. It did look very odd.
