Report – 9 February 2016
Because of the very mild and damp winter, the toads’ migration to their breeding ponds started very early in January this year in some parts of Norfolk, rather than the end of February. The patrols in Ashwellthorpe started on 25 January and have continued intermittently until Saturday 6 February. The weather is now too cold for the migration to continue, so the human crossing patrols won’t be on duty again for at least another six days. There are now 29 volunteers here to help the toads in their annual migration.
