Common Frog (Rana Temporaria).
Photographed in the Rivelin Valley, South Yorkshire.
I noticed this morning that the first frogs are appearing in our local ditches and ponds. The first arrivals are always a little camera shy, but they should be much easier to photograph once spawning gets underway.
Keep an eye out for the first frog spawn in your area and report it to Nature's Calendar.

The Natural History Museum is promoting a special project called Darwin200:
Darwin200 plans to celebrate the impact that Darwin's ideas about evolution, as well as his approach to the understanding of the natural world and his outstanding example as a scientist, continue to have on our lives.
Why not drop us a line and tell us how you will be celebrating Darwin's birthday.

Here's an email we received from Mike Bergin, a bird blogger from across the pond:
I've been shaking my fist northward for the last four frigid weeks. Actually, every part of me has been shaking from the brutal arctic assault. But at last, something great is blowing in from Canada!
Seabrooke Leckie of the Marvelous in Nature seems to weather the harsh winters of eastern Ontario with enviable equanimity. Where lesser souls would crumble and crack, Seabrooke savors every shade of the natural world and spins blog gold. Today, she's keeping us warm with a poetic picnic edition of I and the Bird #92.
Whether you're keeping cool on your blog or heating things up, if you're writing well about wild birds and birding, I and the Bird is for you. Join in the party by sending a link and summary to me or our next outstanding host Vickie (viclcsw AT aol DOT com) of Vickie Henderson Art by February 3 for the 2/5 edition!

I would like to suggest that the web ring is expanded to become 'EU Nature Bloggers'. There are lots of very interesting nature blogs published by ex-pats who are now living in other parts of Europe. Many of these ex-pats get great pleasure from regularly reading & keeping up to date with nature blogs from the UK, but at the same time would like to share their own sightings and natural history adventures in their new adopted countries! Just as many birds migrate to and fro between UK and Europe, it would be nice if our blogs could too!Expanding the webring to cover the whole of the EU would be a bit ambitious, but we could certainly run a special feature on ex-pat nature bloggers.
Please get in touch if you would like to contribute.
