#52 Toads on the march..

Ok, maybe not exactly on the march, but they are definitely starting to move.

I’ve wandered along our road on the last two evenings in search of toads.  We have two large ponds with the road running alongside them. Toads attempting to get to the ponds get trapped on the road as they struggle to get up the kerb – so I give them a helping hand by picking them up and placing them on the grass with a clear route to the water.

Last night there was just the one toad. Tonight, it was the same. Won’t be long though before it runs into the 30’s or so – probably on the next mild night.  I’ll be there, torch in hand, giving them some help..
