A pair of Toads (Bufo spinosus) in amplexus seen in a garden pond south west of the island today 👌 now just waiting to hear when the spawn strings are seen.
On this note, please please keep your eyes out for toads on roads, they’ll be travelling to their breeding ponds and sometimes the roads are the only way across. SoJ Rangers have placed some toad warning signs along 5 mile road and Grands Vaux.
If you know of any toad crossing hot spots, then do please let us know.
