Toads out at Boulderclough

There were two toads out at Boulderclough last night; none at the Washer Lane or Brighouse sites.

There were more frogs inc about 25 males waiting in the water in a small round pond in the corner of a field at Boulderclough, among about 16 clumps of frogspawn.

We had frogs and a toad in one bucket at one point and a male frog got into amplexus with a male toad! I felt I had to get the frog off, as it was my fault. It had a surprisingly strong grip!
