Nice spring weather most of the day. Blackthorn just budding. Catkins & female flowers on the hawthorn. Found some frogs mating. In most places they have already spawned & some of the spawn is beginning to develop. Brought a few bits home. A primrose out in the garden (also polyanthi) but could find none in the woods, though Mrs Nicholls, whom we met, had found a very few, also violets. Anemones not out.
Oh, and by the way, it’s Easter Sunday.
Is he going to raise tadpoles? I hope we get sketches!
18 eggs? 18 eggs!
That’s got to be a one-day high. Long gone are the ‘one egg’ days of Morocco.
On the 16th, the count was 19.
