Toads helped in crossing the road

VOLUNTEERS from Henley Wildlife Group helped more than 2,600 toads across the road.

VOLUNTEERS from Henley Wildlife Group helped more than 2,600 toads across the road. Each year thousands of the migrating amphibians cross the busy Marlow Road from Oaken Grove Wood, off Benhams Lane, to ponds in their spawning grounds at Henley Business School.

The volunteers spent every night during the six-week migration season picking up the toads and carrying them in buckets to safety.

This year we also rescued 297 frogs and 22 newts.

Volunteer co-ordinator Angelina Jones says: ?The toad migration was slow to get going this year as the weather was cold and dry at dusk and amphibians ideally like to move when it?s wet and the temperature is 7C or above.?
