'tis toad time tonight.

Just a very quick blog post today (as I have no laptop at present so am doing this on a tablet).

Each year I try to write a quick report on this annual phenomenon... this year is no different, despite having no working laptop.

Today, (Friday March 9th 2018)... right NOW (18:40hrs) will be the first night in 2018 here and across large parts of the country when conditions are just right for toads to migrate en masse from their winter woodlands back to their traditional breeding ponds.

All they need is a night time temperature of at least 8 or 9 centigrade and some rain.

BOTH criteria are fulfilled tonight here (and across large parts of the country as I've said) for the first time this year.

Drive carefully grapple fans - and do look out for our wonderful toads tonight...
