El Sid (Sunday 25th August 2019)
A few weeks ago Malcolm was spotted in the small garden pond, and I was very pleased to find Sid there while I was watering the garden on Sunday morning. He seems larger but less warty than last year so it seems he is a frog rather than a toad.
According to Wikipedia, 'The use of the common names "frog" and "toad" has no taxonomic justification. From a classification perspective, all members of the order Anura are frogs, but only members of the family Bufonidae are considered "true toads". The use of the term "frog" in common names usually refers to species that are aquatic or semi-aquatic and have smooth, moist skins; the term "toad" generally refers to species that are terrestrial with dry, warty skins.'

They had a bee and insect themed playlist on 6 Music on this morning, and this came up, from probably my favourite Tim Buckley album, Happy Sad, that I bought on vinyl at the time and now have on CD.
