Toad in the hole

Not quite toad of toad hall but we found this in the manure heap on the Easter weekend. We carefully moved it to another compost heap though I guess it would have been less happy with the supply of bugs at its new location. We are happy to have wildlife like this on the allotment. Last year we found frogs there as well. We have put three bird feeders into the hedge as well. The more wildlife attracted there to eat the bugs as well, the less damage the bugs will do to our crops.

It's just a pity that the toads don't eat rabbits. They are visiting regularly and have munched their way through some of David's flowers and herbs. We have taken to putting netting around them.
