Natterjack and Common Toads at Mersehead

After the devastation of the dunes at RSPB Mersehead a few months ago it was looking uncertain as to whether the Natterjack Toad population here had survived. Went for a quick scout today with a Natterjack licence holder and found this large male, which is good news.
Also found some mating Common Toads.

  1. But personally, I think that is the class where they do their best work nowadays. As far as I’m concerned, AUS-8 is the proper budget folder steel (unless we’re speaking Buck knives). It’s nearly proper amount|the right quantity|the right titanium watch amount} of hardness earlier than it begins becoming a chipping threat and holding a grudge against sharpening stones and honing rods. Two-millimeter-thick locking sheath made of highly sturdy Kydex and thermoformed across the knife for an ideal fit. Both have a smooth, finely sharpened edge on one side and rounded serrations on the opposite to forestall snags on rope or mono-filament.
