Helping amphibians to survive

Great Massingham has five main road-side ponds, but we can only cover three of them, patrolling a radiating triangle of roads on the northern edge of the village and the airfield track. Rush hour is busy, with through traffic coming in from all directions at speed.

 Our toad populations have fluctuated but generally declined over the years, with change of land use leading to loss of habitat, and increased road traffic apparently the main causes.
