Green Party Frog Survey
John Gormley, our Minister for the Environment, is commissioning a national "frog survey", as reported today on the Fine Gael website. The cost of the survey is estimated to be in the region of €125,000. Some might say that this is the government "spawning" our hard earned cash as the new budget looms, but us Frog Bloggers reckon he should "hop" to it. In the end, he might end up counting them all himself. It will be easy enough though, as we only have one type of frog in Ireland, Rana temporaria, or the common frog (shown above).
