The incessant wet weather several weeks ago gave us an evening chorus of frogs. These little guys found the tub of water Russell had been using for the light earth mixing, and made themselves at home.

Red eyed tree frogs

A couple of days later we noticed eggs floating on top of the water, and within a week we had dozens of tadpoles.

We've been feeding them lettuce leaves and watching them grow. Now the tiniest of frogs - no bigger than my thumbnail - are heading off into the forest. We like to think we're doing our bit for the wildlife!!
