Mini Frog Time

It's that time of year again when you have to be extra careful where you walk! Mini frogs and toads are jumping around and can be quite difficult to see!

It's mini frog time! This week's misty rain and humid conditions have encouraged the first of the tiny froglets to get out exploring their environs. When you are this tiny it's a dangerous world out there!

Also seen this week were...

Sixteen adult Common Terns on Pit No.1 this morning. They looked like they wanted to investigate the tern rafts but the four nesting pairs were less than welcoming! There are currently 9 chicks (three pairs of parents with three chicks each). This is fantastic news!
