On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me...

...2 mating toads


The common toad (Bufo bufo) is one of three target species in the Community Science 'Scales and Warts' survey. Toads can be seen in large numbers in early spring when they return to their ancestral ponds to mate and spawn. This gathering can attract predators like herons and otters who will feast on the abundance of amphibians.

and a bilberry bumblebee!
