Green Toads were hiding in between the brickwork on the patio. According to my wife these little chaps should be called 'Commando Toads'.
Care was needed around the garden as there were young Adders hiding in all sorts of places.
Well that was Day One - more tomorrow.
In the meantime let us know what you have seen in your 'outback'.
Where to next? This Sunday (10th Aug) at 1.00pm meet at the Mirror Ball for a safari in to the South Shore Rock Pools. Bring your buckets and nets and wear wellies. This event is being run in association with the Wildlife Trust's National Marine Week. It promises to be great fun.
There will be another chance to safari through the rock pools next Sunday (17th Aug) at 4.00pm. Details as above.
