Pond Life - Toad spawn or Frog spawn

Frog spawn or toad spawn - we have both in the pond but which is which?

Frog spawn is the one usually found in large clumps like this. There can be up to a few thousand eggs in a clump.

Toads however lay their eggs in chains, about 2 metres long, round water plants.

Skye was carefully watching me while I was taking the photos.

Rusty Duck was also keeping an eye on me.
