Last Saturday morning early Sue Swann and I went out in our boots to check for Leopard toadlets while Kim Kruyshaar, Leopard Toad co-ordinator for Clovelly was away, little knowing that the rains that had flooded parts of the Clovelly golf course had wreaked so much havoc elsewhere in the Western Cape. Kim is back and has penned a very interesting article on her Leopard Toad research

at the Clovelly Country Club. She has had much more success than we did on Saturday morning in finding the little hoppers.
