Eternal Vigilance  
I spent most of the last few days in my parents' garden. Which, considering the very nice weather and my recent lack of reading, was very nice indeed.

As always I was amazed at the fact that all you need is a tiny oasis like this to meet not only birds, but lizards, frogs, toads and newts. There's one frog that seems to have taken up permanent residence at the pond. Every single time a plane crosses it starts croaking. We're guessing it's trying to chase them away. Quite successfully too - so far not one of them has dared landing. Helicopters, however, do not seem to be considered a threat. Strange that.
