Toads on the Road

Monday, March 21st 2011

Common Toad

Spring has most definitely sprung!  The warm sunshine has brought a flush of sightings today.  Firstly, the Toads are out and about everywhere.  Please be careful as you drive in as they are well camouflaged.

Frogs and spawn

As you can see above the Frogs are not to be left out!  This mass of frogs and spawn is in an isolated pool at the lake.  The water was 'bubbling' with activity this morning.

Other sightings today included the first Brimstone butterfly of the year seen in one of the net rides, the first Chiffchaff of the year heard this morning, two Buzzards circling over the Field Centre and damselfly larvae in an another pond.

We saw those toads when we helped get rid of the path. Loads of them too.
