Toad on the allotment

One of the unfortunate side effects of keeping poultry is that the frogs and toads have disappeared from the allotment. Or so we thought. Tonight when I was closing up the henhouses and netting the duck run, I spotted this toad hopping about beside the pond. I hope for its sake it has wandered off the allotment before the birds are allowed out tomorrow. Chickens in particular can be vicious killers.
