Toads on Roads
Common Toads are very particular about where they breed and often returning to their ancestral breeding ponds each year with scant regard to the impediments they may encounter on the way. When the impediment is a busy road the result can be disastrous for the toads. Froglife has been running the Toads on Roads project for over twenty years, registering migratory road crossings and helping coordinate Toad Patrols who can apply to their local council for road warning signs to be installed and actively help the toads across the road.
This year's Henley Toad Patrol has just started patrolling a 500 metre stretch of the busy A4155 Henley to Marlow Road opposite Henley Business School and will continue to do so until around the end of March. Toads are likely to start their migration whenever temperatures reach around 7°C. If you could spare an hour or so in the evening just after dusk you could make a real difference.
