Talkback: Garden habitats for frogs
What a lovely frog saga. A hedgehog once spent the winter in one of the black bin bags which I use to collect leaves for leaf mould and which resides in my potting shed - the back of the garage really. I often find frogs asleep in the morning in pots in my cold frame which I have watered the night before. Wild creatures do make good use of whatever is available, Kate, as you have found out. I found some blackbirds' nests in my monstrous yuccas, when I was trimming them, with crisp packets, bits of fleece etc beautifully woven together. The storks in The balconies in Hong Kong build their nests of nothing but street detritus and as they are very wide they use plastic bags a lot.
