Thanks Bob, I am relieved as I have wanted more wild life in my organic garden. I do pick the huge slugs out of my compost container with a pair of tongs and drop them into a jar of salted water and often leave a plank on the garden and have counted as many as 14 underneath.
I recently sunk an old clay sink in the ground with sloping sides and rescued a small younger toad this morning as he couldn't climb up the shiny sides. I've put a forked branch in now so that he can climb out of that if he gets stuck again.
Pansyface, Re crawling under the gate, it's a proper door, but I was curious so I had a good look this morning and found that my builder had left a three inch gap between the public park and our new high wall so that could explain it.
