Heads or tails
Nice one Ron
Remember tadpoles as a kid, used to call them "cockes" used to go with empty jam jars and our nets and try and catch them.... but you have to be quick.
Thank for the memories Ron.
Brilliant - thanks, Ron :o)
Well captured Ron, if this warm weather continues they will soon be sprouting legs, come on the frogs.
Great shot,Ron. the heads have it..
Interesting point, Colin. My dad used to take my little brother and I to the ponds at the brickworks at Marsh Green, near to Heinz and the red brick road. We caught sticklebacks with a worm tied onto a piece of string and my dad called them 'cockies'. We then put them into a jam jar. I was 6-7 years old (1952-53). What good times.
same as you fred .. we called sticlebacks cockies. tadpoles where always tadpoles.
nice pic though
Good one Ron. In my day (long time ago) we called the sticklebacks "cockies" and the tadpoles "taddies". Great times at the old works ponds near the Aspull Civic Centre.
Cockies were always sticklebacks, where we came from. as you say Ron, the tadpoles were taddies.
