As I was clearing out some of the long grass next to the garden pond I spotted something brown move:
Usually I disturb frogs but this time it was a pleasant surprise to see it was a young toad:
This is the first young one I have seen. My guess would be it is about 2 years old.
I have never spotted any toad spawn in the pond but they could well have joined the frogs.
