I had my first evening on Toad Patrol, at East Langdon, tonight. There were a few toads, 28 I think and one very large frog that all got moved across the road. There were three of us with our buckets, I was lucky to be with Emily and Theresa, both experienced at the job and good at finding toads at the road edge before they got into dangerius areas. I wa ssurprised at the volume of traffic through such a small village. It's a bit like helping little old ladies across the road. Over you go, even if you weren't going that way! This was The one I picked up next to the cars. I got it to pose before I took it for it its obligatory swim.
