Care of Frogspawn and Tadpoles
The common frog, in spite of its name, is not common in many areas of Britain these days. In the intensively farmed countryside the frog has almost completely disappeared. Agricultural sprays, draining wetland habitats and filling-in small ponds that the frogs use as breeding sites, are the main reasons for the frogs' decline.
It is great fun to collect frog spawn in the spring, if you can find it, but don't be tempted to collect too much and make sure you look after it.
