They seem to be everywhere around Hillcourt road. My cat brought in a dead one earlier and Iíve just found a live one in the kitchen!!!! Who has now been safely placed back outside..... until my cat probably brings it in again tomorrow. >.< anyone else having froggy encounters?

There are frogs in my garden, but not that many!

We thought there were loads judging from the rustlings at night, but it turns out much of the rustling was caused by tiny mice (bless).

Yep, our cat keeps bringing in frogs (Dovedale Road), as far as I know there are no near neighbours with ponds - I'd love to keep them in my garden to deal with the slugs/snails etc but my cats just use them for sport😔

Have any lice appeared yet?

I do hope those mice are outside and not indoors!

No frogs or mice around here but I did suffer a brief plague of horseflys during the recent hot weather. Yes, hoRse, not hoUse! Two weeks ago one of the blood-sucking blighters bit me on the shin and only over the last couple of days has the bite begun to fade. It looked like I'd been attacked with a tin opener!

Yes, they are living in the garden!

I have a pile of branches etc at the back specifically for wildlife, so maybe they are nesting in there.

I do get frogs though, we see (and hear) them hopping around at night. They keep to the edges.

I once, sadly, found a dessicated frog beneath some vinyl at the edge of my kitchen. I presume it had got trapped and couldn't get out again sad smiley Couldn't happen now as I have painted wooden floorboards.
