Big Spawn Count returns for a second year
Coming to a pond near you… Close Encounters of the amphibian kind.
This spring, we would like you to take part in our annual survey – the Big Spawn Count, to help provide more of an insight into the amorous lives of toads and frogs.
Britain’s frogs and toads are having an increasingly tough time, as the number of countryside ponds has fallen, and those that are left are suffering from pollution, and general neglect. However, one answer to the problem may be garden ponds and these may well be increasingly important for breeding frogs and toads.
The first Big Spawn Count took place last spring and provided some interesting findings, but we want to find out more about the importance of garden ponds for our native amphibians.
You can take part in the Big Spawn Count by counting the number of spawn present in your own pond.
This is a joint survey supported by:
