|The pond at the picnic area|
I had a spot of lunch in the dog-free picnic area before setting off for a walk. There is a pond here and it was full of tadpoles. Taking a closer look, you can see that most of them have developed hind legs. In the next few weeks, they will grow front legs and the tail will shrink, eventually becoming tiny froglets and leave the pond.
