Frogs are back

After not having seen any frogs around for a while they were back again tonight. The first we encountered just outside the back door where the decking doesn't quite meet the house and there is a small gap. Said frog was using the famous small animal logic "if I can't see you then you can't see me", and was sitting with this head under the decking and his bottom poking out. So, I scooped him up and took him back to the Frog Pond.

Some time later we went into the kitchen to find another frog, this time sitting in the middle of the kitchen floor. He looked a little bemused I thought, he'd obviously taken a wrong turn at the back door and instead of finding himself in the dark damp space under the decking found himself in the bright blue airy space in the middle of our kitchen floor. When we turned the light on he turned round and started walking to the back door (frogs look very funny when they walk instead of hop). So, I picked him up and took him back to the Frog Pond as well! King Frog and the first rescued frog were both sitting there to greet him!
