Mercy Dash!

 One very silly 'Pobble-Bonk' frog laid her eggs on this barren rocky edge of a little weir.  The sun was starting to dry them out, in fact the top layer of developing tadpoles was really baked, but those underneath in the water were still alive.
            You can see the sun dried skin of the foam egg mass here. A mercy dash was in order!
Scoop up the egg mass in a bucket and take it to a lovely shady patch of deep water within the reeds, and hopefully some of the tadpoles will survive.
