Amphibian rescue mission. The weather threw everything at us apart from snow. Five buckets full and 3 journeys later… home for cheese on toast…yay!
Checked early this afternoon and saw more toadspawn in the horse jump. Returned at 6 p.m and to my delight also found 3 pairs of toads, 3 male holding fast to their females, plus a single male. Collected them plus the toad spawn and transferred to the safe pond. Unfortunately no photos as I was on my tod and it was a tad dark. Successful p.m. It will be interesting to see if I’ve left any behind and if more spawn is laid.
