We fetched a laundry bucket, placed the (wee-ing!) tortoise in it and took a walk to the nearest dam. (Little dog firmly on lead).
Releasing the tortoise on the downward facing grass-lined dam edge, we left him (it?) there to enjoy itself.
At this time of year, tortoises often go wandering in search of a mate. We only hope that this particular tortoise is successful in the area around the dam where he was placed this morning.
BTW, it was such a lovely morning for a walk!
