Yes, Spring is nearly here and the toads will soon be on the move.
 
Every year in Calderdale, thousands of toads make their perilous journeys to their historic breeding ponds. Last year, hundreds of toads were saved by volunteers carrying the toads across the road in buckets, before releasing them safely. If you would like to help please contact countryside@calderdale.gov.uk, ring 01422 28 4430 or attend the toad evening to be held on 3rd March, 7:30pm at Queens Hotel, Todmorden.
