Accumulating Amphibians

Tuesday, March 13th 2018

The frogs are finally spawning, with numerous clusters found in the Scrapes, Wetland, and the ponds along Risedale Beck. 

Although delayed due to the low temperatures we have experienced of late, night time temperatures have risen such that amphibians across the reserve are now starting to emerge from hibernation.

We're not the only ones to be excited by their return, with the Heron over on the Wetland being especially enthused!

Today we started on net rides 32, 33 and 34; finishing vegetation clearance on all three rides, and completing brash clearance on 32 and 33 before calling it a day.

This leaves us with brash to clear up on net ride 34 this Thursday before I start to clear the next couple of rides this coming Sunday and Monday.
