The toads have been busy laying their spawn in various places in and around Wyre. Their strings of eggs are wound round water plants and each string contains about 1500 eggs.
I checked out one of the spawning sites in Wyre on Sunday 21st April. The spawning was almost over and there were many strings of spawn wrapped around the vegetation along the edges of the pool. There were one or two males still croaking, and I found one pair in amplexus, as seen in the photograph.
