Despite having come through the mildest, wettest winter on record, as at 6th march my frogs and most in my areas area still to spawn. I have at least 6 poor females who have been in amplexus for well over a week. The cool nights just keep preventing them from spawning. Not heard a single croak yet. Smooth Newts stacked in on  22nd Feb, and I had a female GCN egg laying that night despite not seeing a male as yet!  Could be another frog/toad mash-up breeding season!
