    1. They are quite common on the plot, Jo. They like to have water nearby in order to breed but most of the time they stay on dry land as long as they can find somewhere damp to hide.

  9. A plot near mine has a pond, so we have a plentiful supply of yellow frogs (as well as toads) and I've seen the occasional newt sheltering in the autumn. An oasis of wildlife in an area where the suburban gardens are very rapidly being block-paved or tarmac-ed over for parking.

    1. We get lots of frogs and toads on the plot too,S and D. One or two plots have small ponds and there are also some large fishing lakes not far from the site. We have also had ducks paying us a visit.

    1. We do have some log piles, Jayne. We also have piles of straw and overgrown corners where they can hide too. Often though we find them hiding under stones or in the soil.
