What's In Your Pond?
With the longer daylight hours and slightly milder temperatures, it won't be long before frogs are returning to their ponds to breed. You're likely to see the first arrivals after a few days of bright sunny weather and they are usually followed a week or so later by the appearance of frogspawn. If you, or a friend, has a garden pond why not look out for frogs this year and let us know by using our "What's in Your Pond?" website: Http://www.whatsinyourpond.org.uk/.
It's not possible for us to collect this information without your help and these observations are valuable to us. We're also keen to hear about newts or toads in your pond and if you need help identifying them there's a handy leaflet that you can download from the Amphibian Identification page of the What's in Your Pond? website.
In 2010 ARGSL launched the Lancashire Amphibian and Reptile Atlas project (LARA). LARA holds over 5000 records covering Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.
