…..or should that be a Frog or a Toad.
I dont profess to be an expert in any field of Nature, I just enjoy observing and photographing it.
I have come to observing Nature later in life and through researching about what I photograph, consequently I do learn something about most things.
I also learn a lot from others who are experts or have far more knowledge on such subjects in their fields than I.
On Wednesday 19th of March I posted about finding what I believed after research, were a few Common Toads in a pond which is located in a local woodland nature reserve. See:
The book says that Toads are rough warty skinned amphibians, whereas Frogs are smooth skinned.
The book also says that Frog Spawn comes in big lumps and Toad spawn is single stringed and wraps around submerged plant stalks.
I returned to that pond today only to find what appeared to be Frog Spawn with quite a few of the same amphibians swimming around the spawn and generally doing what nature intended.

I'm still confused as a Newt.
