The common toad is in decline in the UK. Each year they return to their ancestral ponds to spawn but they need our help to cross the roads, particularly at dusk.

The season is usually mid-February and March but it depends on the weather. Volunteers work in pairs and typically do an evening about once a week wearing Hi-Viz.

In this area we particularly need help at Carleton Forehoe (the bridge) Wramplingham Road/Youngmans Road and Great Melton.

See Toadwatch.org for more info. If you would like to help your local toads then please contact Georgette at Wymondham@toadwatch.org.
