Weather lore

A little birdie told me that in Yorkshire the weather lore says –

If frogspawn appears early it is a sign of a mild spring and of early weather that’s suitable for tadpoles.

Another little birdie told me –

If frogspawn is in a sheltered part of a pond it means that spring will be wet and windy.  If the frogspawn is out in the middle of the pond it means a dry spring and early summer.  It is because frogs choose deep water if they know there is going to be a drought.

Aren’t frogs clever?

And aren’t my little birdies clever to know this?
