Frog invasion of the house!!!
Very early this morning, I woke up with a headache and went downstairs for a cuppa I walked into the Lounge and had the very surreal experience of being confronted by an adult Frog spawled out over the carpet, it was OK but appearing slightly sluggish and I released it as it perked up and leapt into the Goldfish pond! Early this evening Jenny was about to start the cooking when one another adult Frog leapt out from either under the oven (No, very fresh cuisses de grenouille were not on the menu!!) or the fridge and Jenny again realised it into the pond. We are certain the cats didn't bring them in as we had kept then in since 8pm and can only assume the Frogs leapt in when the back door was open! In the evening I went to Gunton Meadow and saw the 10 Green- winged Orchids again taking pics the Lesser Whitethroat, Whitethroat and Song Thrush were again singing out of sight and also briefly saw an obliging Small Tortoiseshell. This evening at around 10.20 a very early Cockchafer was flying up to the conservatory windows when we had the light on.
