I counted 2 mating pairs and 3 other singles, making a total of at least 7 Toads. No doubt there will have been others below the murky surface.
Along with the numerous singing Chiffchaff, a pair of Linnets were searching out a nest site. I added Brimstone to the butterflies now emerged from hibernation.
