Move over the frogs, the toads are coming to a pond near you…
It was impossible to count, but I’m sure there must have been over a hundred. When we came home at dusk on Thursday night we had to abandon the car in the drive, we couldn’t have driven on without squashing them, they arriving from every direction. I wonder how they know which direction to head.
They had no qualms about being disturbed by humans or dogs. Spud just jumped in
And joined those looking for love
This one was climbing back out, job done I suppose.
It sat in the sun for quite a while,
it was a very sunny day, I was getting a bit worried it might need some factor 50 sun cream, that skin looks delicate.
I spotted one with only three legs. I wondered if it was a birth defect, or if it had lost a limb in some toady trauma. It amazes me how animals can seem to manage such an injury.
It seemed to be coping just fine (and no, it didn’t swim round in circles).
