This toad was taken out briefly from the dam at Hebden Hey. They seem to change colour when wet. Or perhaps hormonal changes cause a colour change.

The original finder of the site can only go in the daytime. Here are her recent daytime counts.


2 days ago – 11 freshly dead

today Friday 1st April – 27 dead, 4 coupled pairs (8) plus, by coincidence, 27 singles on the move.

Among the many willing volunteers, perhaps there are some who could go up in the day.

(The original finder, Kate, notices quite a lot of traffic going to Hebden Hey some days.)
