Common and garden variety

After spending the weekend building a compost heap and clearing the garden I was out after dinner lovingly emptying the vegetable peelings onto the heap when I heard a “shk, shk, shk” of some dry leaves blowing past my feet.  The leaves looked a little heavy and solid to be blowing like that.  The camera flash revealed Bufo Bufo [Common Toad] on his (?) way across the lawn.
