Eery year we have hundreds of toads cross the road and come into our garden. This week they seem to have started mating, unfortunately there have already been 2 casualties, but Ive helped plenty of others get across!
Location Stockport cheshire.

Hi there, welcome to RAUK, we kind of abandoned the individual records on this thread a couple of years ago. We now have a recording form at: - m

Records submitted via the form are forwarded to relevant county records and recording centres, you record would be most welcome.
