Ribbit

For weeks now hundreds of toads have been converging on our pond. As dusk falls they start getting particularly vocal, a sound which we have become used to each spring. This year we have heard far more  frogs adding to the evenings chorus than I remember from previous years. The arrival of the toads and frogs has also been accompanied by a couple of other visitors, two Grey Herons, which are intent on treating the pond as their own ‘eat as much as you can buffet’, a reminder that nature is full of opportunists.
