|It's a frog!|
The Husband was not thrilled, as he was, understandably, expecting said crisp packet to be empty and got quite a shock when he discovered a rather large resident! Crisp Packet and his missus went on to have lots of babies and they were extremely cute, keeping Luke amused for hours!

As well as frogs, we also have some success with our bird box. You may remember, I wrote about a great recipe for birdcake, which is a cheap and easy way to provide a good food supply to attract birds. I am pleased to report that we still get Coaltits returning each year, with the last babies flying the nest this morning. No photos, unfortunately, this time, as it all happened very quickly. I actually think there was a very small number. I only saw one, but I'm unsure if he was the only one, or we just happened to catch the last one leaving. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a small brood this year, though, since the box had it's fair share of problems over the previous few months.
