The Day We Found a Toad September 2019
What an exciting find! We were looking for worms in our bug area and we came across what we thought was a frog. We had a look on the internet together and found out that it was a toad and that they like to be where it is damp. We had a good look at him and then decided we should put him by the pond. We put him on the side of the water and he hopped onto a lily pad. We are so lucky to have a Pinewood pond!
