This is a small village near Dover in Kent. My intention is to show some of the Village, its history and the wildlife I find there.

Natural Pest controllers
Clearing up in the garden, I moved a pile of clipping that Pam had left for me, a few days ago, before the heavens opened.
I was delighted to find this small Common Toad, probably a couple of years old. It was an extremely pale one and surprised me by hopping as well as walking.
With the wet weather there has been a good number of slugs and snails appearing, so the more of these gardeners friends that come to our aid, the better.
Also hiding under the rubbish was one of this years frogs, still only about the size of my thumb nail. I really needed to cut the grass, and before I could do this I had to inspect the area carefully to ensure it was just grass that was getting chopped up.
