Brill pic Forget Me Not! I have just sunk a deep plastic container in a flower border and filled it with rain water and some pond weed- hope to get the odd frog coming to sit in it over the Summer. Haven't room for a real pond, plus have a 2yr old granddaughter- so a container is safer! Will let you all know if I get visitors! :frog:

:frog: I would have expected to see a lot of frogs in the garden with all the wet weather,hear an odd croak every so often but nothing like the numbers there used to be.
Are these on the decline too?

It's funny that you should say that Jan, as I was only thinking the same thing myself the other day.
I used to see quite a lot on the lawn after rain, but I've only seen one so far this year.

Great photo's fmn and Djan. you're both very lucky. I did see a few very small ones earlier on this year, but none since.
I haven't seen my toad (I say my, because I don't think they travel very far, and live for quite a long time) this year either, I used to see it quite regularly other years.
