Comfrey, but it can be a thug, as it spreads, but you can cut it several times a season.

Tadpoles....I think

Funnily enough a bat came in and flew round the room last night. It settled on a curtain and I was able to put it out. Not sure how it got in as the windows are closed!

Not entirely true; the local otters fish under the bridge in the centre of town in the early morning.
