Toad and frog spawn laid last weekend is already hatching after this warm week. Thousands of tiny tadpoles eating the rest of the protective jelly at side of pond. It is a great sight. I am surprised that there were no birds taking advantage of this easily captured feast.

It is important to note that Gadespring Cress Beds is still being developed & due to health & safety will only be available for access, other than to wildlife monitors & work parties, at organised events & at times when there is a weekend volunteer warden on duty. General public access is a possibility for the future & this could only happen once the wildlife hide is relocated after planning permission. Keep an eye on this website & blog, as well as the Box Moor Trust website, for details of open days & organised public events when you can visit & explore Gadespring.
