found a frog in the garden today. this is quite unusual as we have no pond and there's no stream nearby. our house was built about 25 years ago and at that time there was a drainage ditch between 2 fields running roughly parallel to the back fence about 60 yards away -this area has now been built on as the housing estate expanded,about 20 years ago, and the ditch levelled out but we do occasionally have dragonflies,the electric blue type and a larger brown variety, in the garden as if searching out the old water course.
