Stock Dove in Singleton Park, Swansea

I came across this Stock Dove in Singleton Park yesterday:

Pretty sure it's only the second one I've seen there.

A Frog On The Footpath

I almost trod on this frog as I was walking home on February 27th, as it crossed the footpath in front of me. After I'd taken some footage and put my camera away, I notice it had hopped into the road and looked likely to meet a grisly fate under the wheels of a passing car, so I picked it up and carried it to the other side. It thereupon tried to climb a vertical concrete wall, before giving up on that and sitting bewildered for a while in the middle of the pavement, where it was almost squashed by several passers-by. I picked it up again, and found an area of long grass and undergrowth, where I put it down, hoping it was a safe haven from the traffic.
