Toads

Post by Willpar » Wed Aug 03, 2016 9:25 pm

Went out with the hedgehog food just before dusk. Seen something move on the lawn, and took a closer look. Was a baby toad hopping around. Hope the hedgehogs don't find it, may well be supper, that's if they can eat them.

Unfortunately not. :( I had a resident Toad a couple of years back but it suddenly vanished. :shrug:

:) I remember that, Jacksparrow.

Just as an aside we always like to type/write "toady" instead of "today" e.g. "How are you toady?" :rolleyes: Well never fails to amuse me :laugh:

:clap: - therefore Willpar's original post might have read: "Saw a toady toady". :laugh:

They said this morning that 75% of toads have disappeared in the last 30 years.
What a terrible indictment of a 'civilised' society.
Maybe things will change :shake:and The Headmistress will build tunnels under every road in Britain ?
