As we arrived back from a mid-day walk I spotted a dark shape at the side of the front garden path. A Common Toad, not often seen in daylight as they are normally active at night. Not only was it out in daylight but stayed where it was even when I got the Nikon really close:
I think that is only the second time I have seen a toad around the garden. Not only that but a short while later when I walked along the same path the toad had moved on but nearby was a Common Frog:
Once again this amphibian remained in place while I got some close shots.
A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.
Most of the pictures in the main part of my Jottings can be clicked on for larger views.
Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
