Amphibians

Report of frogspawn at Heptonstall (before 25th Feb.)
Also a few toads have been tempted out by the milder weather at Greetland and Lumbutts.

It's time to watch out for the yellow-jacketed people who stand about picking toads up just before they get flattened by traffic ( They often appear mostly after dark.) Somebody suggested they should put little yellow jackets on the toads :-)

Frogs in our pond yesterday in Todmorden and we expect frogspawn any time.

Dave Sutcliffe reported on Calderdale Birds that frogs were congregating at Cold Edge yesterday in a footpath pond just below Moorlands Farm - down the track from the Withens - but not at Cold Edge dams - yet!

8 clumps of frogspawn in the silted dams high up Colden Dale today.

Loads of frog spawn at Langfield when I was up there yesterday.
