    Toad Porn....

    Does anyone else have a lot of toads in their garden or around where they live?

    Its our first summer in our house and i came across one the other day on our back steps. The next day, while moving the bin out of the drive for the binmen to collect there it was again, sat under the bin this time

    Last night was amazing though. I looked out of the window at about 8pm and saw things moving at the end of our drive. I went out to find 2 "at it" and 2 others jumping around watching!

    They were still there an hour later but another toad had come to watch and this time joined in so it turned into a threesome!

    Amazing stuff, ive never seen anything like it before lol!

    Someone in my street must have a pond in their garden.

    We have a large'ish pond in the back garden and it is full of them. I saw about 6 at the surface swimming around the other day. There are a bunch of medium sized fish in there too.

    I hope they all play nicely!

    Toads ( the dry warty ones) live mostly in damp areas only going back to spawn in the water usually the same pond tat they themselves were spawned in.
    It is not unusual for lots of them to bee seen all heading in he same direction at this time of year ( well it is a bit later this year due to the cold snap) as they all try and make it home for mating. Frogs too will live on land if very damp but they do like to be near to water.

    I have a spring (water type!) at the top of my garden which I have diverted to fed next doors pond, the first frog spawn ( easily identified because it is just a mass of eggs rather than a toads "rope" of eggs) was laid last Sunday.

    I am going to be a daddy again.
