5th March - Thousands of frog eggs laid in clumps in a fresh water pond.  Each clump is laid by one female.   Many females will often gather in the same area and the clumps are normally found in groups.  Each egg and clump will swell in size during the first few days as the eggs absorb water from the pond.
