helping amphibians to survive

Migration 2013

The toads started to appear in March but the weather became too cold for any movement and the migration stopped.   The migration started again on April 10th but by April 15th the toads were back on their way home, some of the returning toads could have been in the ponds for several weeks.

By 22nd April most of the toads had left the ponds and were on their way home - so the patrols are now over.  There are some figures still to be added to the records below.
