I’ve now heard that the frogs are metamorphosing in Dundee,¬†does anyone know¬†whether they have metamorphosed further north than this yet? I’d be very interested to hear from you


All the low altitude tadpoles are now escaping their watery homes en masse as froglets. An interesting point: despite up to a months difference in when spawn was laid across my six sites, all have metamorphosed in the same week. Therefore, the tadpoles have taken between 3 and 4 months to develop.
