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.
