Common Frogs Return

After the pond froze yesterday I was really surprised to wake up this morning to a pond full of writhing frogs.
Too many to count at the moment as they dive at the slightest twitch of the curtain, but we often get 30 -40 frogs a year.

Many of these frogs have travelled from outside of our garden.
This one was crossing the pavement outside our house and open its way to our front gate.
Occasionally they pair up even before the reach the pond (which is in our back garden) such as this pair

Any I find on the way to the pond I give a helping hand and will be keeping an eye out over the next few days. Last year I found a couple of frogs who had not managed to reach the pond and died - so I now give them a hand
