Toads return to breed
"I was getting worried but yesterday, a foot or so down on the first pond, up near the feeders, the other side of the bund next to the scrape, I spotted lots of mating Toads and strings of 'pearls'. They were hard to see but we were able to show a couple of visitors a sight which few have seen.
It rained so hard that we had few visitors to the open day. The toads must have known!!"

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.
