It’s that time of year again, well in fact they’re early! How do you tell the difference between frog, toad and newt spawn? 
Frogspawn is laid in big clumps of jelly in shallow water like here. When they hatch tadpoles they are black and stick together in a shoal. Toads lay long strings of eggs wrapped around vegetation in slightly deeper water. 
Toad tadpoles stay black and don’t go green with gold speckles. 
Newt eggs are laid individually on submerged plant leaves and the tadpoles grow a frill behind their heads. 
They are known as efts, their front legs develop first where frog and toad tadpoles get their back legs first!
