I was torn tonight ‘twixt a Bat group meeting and a Barn Owl meeting, both on Zoom – Or – going out on Toad Patrol to rescue toads from the local village road.

As there were 18 toads killed prior to me getting to the village last night, I knew that toad rescues had to be my priority.

The road with the ponds is in a valley and as I stepped out of the car I was shocked at how cold it was. The temp. had suddenly dropped down to 2°C. and the little toads knew better – they were not going anywhere. lol! I didn’t see one..and by the time I returned home both zoom meetings had also finished….doh! ‘The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.’

As I have no toad photos tonight, I thought I’d share my painting of a frog.
