A few weeks ago the boys and daddy came home from a Sunday afternoon walk with a jam jar containing a little bit of frogspawn.
The sand pit was still waiting for some decent weather to let us give it it's annual spring clean, followed by some nice new sand for the summer, and so since it was sitting empty it was decided to fill it with water and turn it into a pond for the frogspawn, until they grow up anyway!
The boys kept an eager eye on the eggs and were very excited to see them hatch into tiny tadpoles after about 10 days.
The tiny tadpoles are now bigger tadpoles but still have no sign of the little legs growing on them.
Will keep you posted about whether we see any baby birds!
As for the tadpoles, well Alasdair keeps telling people they are going to hop into our house when they turn into frogs!
