Toads North Fife 2010

The common toad (Bufo bufo) or European toad. The first warm night of the year, a little rain and the annual meet of toads is beginning. A few years ago I would move the odd toad from the garden path partly to avoid treading on them but also to help them to the pond. This operation could be repeated many times until I realised that Toads are territorial by nature and it would be the same one back each time, indeed the same ones would be back each year so now I let things be.
