Toad found underneath stones in a fallen down wall; perhaps still sheltering from bad weather?
No interactions present.
Are trying times for amphibians, because of their "porous" skin. Natterjacks fare worst, because they usually lay in shallow ponds in dune slacks, which dry out very quickly in such conditions. The tadpoles don't have time to metamorphose.
I took this photo earlier in the year when it was cold and wet. The pile of walling stones will now be able to provide shelter away from the hot sun and heat. Best of both worlds. It is difficult when amphibians cannot get away from the current heat.
