Not only frogs... all sorts active now
It still cannot quite decide what it wants to do... the weather I mean. But wildlife usually knows, and almost everything is getting ready to court, display, breed. Of course most of the butterflies are still absent, their time comes later, especially in June and July, but the amphibians are stirring, the odd reptile has shown its face and the resident birds are in full swing. Flocks of shorebirds are here moving through and soon the first of those that spend their winters further south will be here... another month and the wetlands and woodlands will be buzzing.
