Toad migration full on 6.30pm - till as long as you want.

While temperature holds up to about 10C after dark.

Those who would like to help at toad patrols can contact me by mobile/text.

Roads are much busier than they used to be and hi-viz or light coloured clothing is essential. Also a torch, bucket and gloves.

Due to increased risk from speeding traffic, I would not recommend it for families with young children, sadly.



  1. Plenty frog spawn up Soil Hill now Steve

  2. Thanks Brian. Looks like a bumper Spring for amphibians generally.

  3. They've removed the toad crossing sign in Copley Village. Seems a negative thing to do. Thought I'd let you know.
