Toad (?) in border
I moved some brick edging in my front garden this morning and found (pretty sure) a toad. It wasn't particularly 'warty' or dry but the plants were wet from last night's rain. I went to get my camera but it had gone when I returned. Attach pic of where it was plus others to give idea of area. Apart from the close-up, pics were taken couple of months ago.
Looking on the internet there is advice about toad soaking pools/houses etc. I have quite a lot of work on in my place as it is, without constructing toad habitats but, saying that, I am was delighted to see it and hope the garden is ok for it's survival. There is lots of cover, some paving slabs and stones (overgrown with plants) large shrubs etc.
Being a front garden - the road isn't far away but it would have to get onto the drive first. I would be more worried if it was in the back garden as there was a visit from a fox recently (looked like the battle of the Somme, with flower beds dug up, gravel and membrane dug up and bulbs scattered around.)
Before anyone rushes to their defence - I don't want to get into a heated debate as I think they are a menace. Advice re toad would be great please!
