The jelly-like substance has been found at the RSPB Ham Wall Nature reserve in Somerset. As yet the mystery slime has not been identified.
Steve Hughes, the RSPB site manager at Ham Wall, said: "This past week we've been finding piles of this translucent jelly dotted around the reserve.
"Always on grass banks away from the water's edge. They are usually about 10cm (4in) in diameter. We've asked experts what it might be, but as yet no one is really sure. Whatever it is, it's very weird."

I find it kind of odd that a nature preserve wouldn't know what unfertilized frogspawn looks like. I mean, they are supposed to know about what's going on in the preserve right?
I was actually thinking the same thing, I can only guess the reason is the Nature reserve where this was found was an RSPB reserve and although they are a charity working to secure a healthy environment for birds and all wildlife & the individuals they asked were just bird experts.

I have a great idea. Gather some Friends and setup a 24hour watch taking shifts. Make sure you have powerful flashlights available. When you catch whomever is dropping this crap to create a story, make them pick it all up.
If it really is unfertilized frog spawn and it's being found more often, then what is happening to our frogs? What's wrong with them? It's something like the canary in the mine. We should pay attention.
