Newts, toads, frogs are all rescued during Toad Patrol.
A balmy 9C and it had just started to drizzle…..ideal conditions for toad manoeuvres. Toads were heading along the road toward the Tollard village pond.
These two were on our driveway tonight. Whether sitting upright on dry land or lying flat in the rain and pretending not to be there, they are well camouflaged.
I sadly failed to rescue 5 duringToad Patrol tonight.
Rescued 1 from the road
Rescued10 rescued on the track.
To date, toad numbers are definitely down on last year, but this may be due to the recent cold temps.
