Who's that sitting in the grass? (See Alan's finger pointing).
I have made few postings on reptiles or amphibians on this blog, but here in the grass of the welcome area, on a bright November morning, hopped a bright-eyed common frog.
After posing for a photo he hopped off into the grass. I wonder how many more there are hopping round the place. They are supposed to be hibernating at the bottom of a pond by now, so he's a late sleeper.
Frogs re-emerge in February to mate. I was once working on a pond restoration job on February 14th, Valentine's Day, and the pond was full of frogs on the job. A happy day.
