About Me

My photo
London, United Kingdom
This blog will contain pictures and information from my everyday encounters with nature in London and the surrounding areas. I will log details of the origin of each photograph thus recording what there is to be seen and where it was seen. I very much welcome anyone else who can upload photos and information about nature in London and the home counties. I work freelance in the film industry so have plenty of days off. I hope to update Monday to Friday and once on the weekend posting at around 19.30, I don't post on bank holidays

Common Frog

I spotted this frog on my doorstep in SE London late at night a few days a go. According to my Reader's Digest 'Britain's Wildlife, Plants and Flowers' 1987 they're found throughout Britain and Ireland...'Found mainly in The New Forest & south east London'
