So exciting isn't it Zenjeff, she/he looks to be a fairly mature frog too. We love our tiny pond, dragon flies, birds drinking, frogs, newts, water snails, water boatmen and a whole host of smaller insects live in or around our pond.
It's so exciting to get your first frog visit to a new pond. It took me 2 years to get my first amphibian vsitor and was beginning to worry that my pond building skills weren't up to scratch and then...voila! A gorgeous adult female turns up. It was such a big deal for me. (Sad I know). Now, 4 years later, I've got an amphibian hat trick going on (toads, newts and frogs),
PS. You have a PM
no photo but I caught a grasshopper in my hand this morning to show oh. I know, I know, I'm like lightening. Beautiful thing up close for the 2 seconds it stayed on my hand.
What a nice liitle thread.

Recently started getting a Bullfinch in my garden, here he is on my feeder with some Greenfinches..
What a great picture LeadFarmer, you are lucky to have so many bird visitors at one time and a really neat bird feeder too.
Fantastic LF - greenies and a bullfinch. I'm very jealous
Used to get lots of greenfinches round here but they're non existent now
Rarely see bullfinches, although we had a pair regularly visiting at the last house and I often see them when walking. There are some around but they have an NT garden close at hand so there's plenty of habitat for them there
Fantastic contributions so far. I'd love to get amphibians to my new pond, but I live sandwiched between two roads with very closed off gardens so will be amazed if I ever do! Quit a quiet week for me so far, but i did manage to find a large emerald moth resting on my dwarf beans during the heat of the day - sadly camera needing charging and it had gone by the time it had.
Bullfinches are wonderful birds - there colouration rivals robins. I hope it sticks around for you leadfarmer.

The shot is a few years old now, so not sure if it belongs in this thread?
A small frog I found on my checks before going around with the dreaded Strimmer.
He was a lucky little fella
