Pwll Penarth

More of the usual stuff seen today, Lots of common frogs about had to keep your eye fixed to the ground as they were jumping everywhere and some like the one pictured just relying on camouflage.

A White-legged Damselfly

A Speckled Wood

Walked up the hill by the weir to look for grass snakes 2 were seen together still no photo but will keep trying.
At the top of the hill had my eyes on the ground to dodge the frogs and see the snakes and came across a Mole eating a Slug was completly taken in the moment and just got on my hands and knees and watched it and totally forgot about the camera, bet I will never see that again.

The Garden

Well the pond is now alive with little frogs I am guessing there are over 100 and all they have to do is avoid the birds and anything else that will eat them when they leave the pond.

Pwll Penarth

Found a Hedgehog in my pond this morning must have fell in last night had put a ramp in in case this happened but it obviously never found it so have now put stones and rocks on the opposite side in case this happens again, did not even know I had them visiting the garden.

Struggled to find much about today as the rain seems to have put things of from coming out.
