News from the frog pond

Hamish is a small tartan frog thing that I found in a charity shop years and years ago. On a recent trip to Cheltenham, I found another! Again, in a charity shop jumble basket. This time a black and floral chintz frog, still with her Liberty of London tags. I brought her home and introduced her to Hamish, and now they are a very happy couple.

Flora and Hamish

Hamish is particularly delighted about my honors project. I will soon start work researching the factors affecting the ability of a certain fly species to colonise buried remains. For this, I will be in charge of my very own fly culture. Hamish may help me in my work, but he must not eat my flies!
