Toad Walk

Wednesday, March 26th 2014

This morning we held the Frog Walk, which turned out to be a Toad Walk as there were no frogs to be seen because they have already laid their spawn and moved on.

 

 

We had a walk round the easy access trail and then down to the beck in search of all things amphibious.

There were plenty of toads to make up for the lack of frogs. Most of the toads we saw were males which were sitting on the bottom of the ponds awaiting the arrival of their larger female companions.

We also saw lots of frogspawn, a much of which was partially hatched with the new tadpoles hiding beneath the now empty jelly.

Thank you to those of you who came along, we hope you enjoyed your visit.
