it's that time of year already when the survey season is about to kick off. The amphibian surveys should be starting fairly soon, as soon as the weather warms up and toads will be on the move soon too.

This movement is hard to predict but Sussex Ecology are involved with a Toad Patrol this year in North London. This will involve catching toads and moving them to a safe place so that they are not killed by passing cars. This is likely to take place in February or March and should last for a week.

More updates are likely to be posted on the Sussex Ecology website
