At the weekend we paid a visit to Dalby Forest, along one of the walks were some boggy ponds that have appeared since we had quite a lot of rain recently; these ponds were full of croaking frogs! This was the middle of the day.
Tonight while out for an evening walk I spotted another toad sitting on the road, I helped it along to the other side (the direction in which it was pointing) although I suspect it might just go back onto the road, maybe they get confused by the cool tarmac in the moonlight?
Back at the garden pond this evening I spotted several frogs and the first two newts of the season for me, most likely smooth newts. Things will soon hot up in there, may soon see the hedgehogs out from their winter slumber too.
Looking forward to a good spring and summer of wildlife watching.
