Amphibian migration

Amphibian migration

Business as usual! Each year when it as about to migrate to the breeding grounds, thousands of toads and frogs are on the move.

This year we have had a focus on the migration itself. Mostly happening during the dark hours this meant spending the nights along the forest edges waiting for Common toads, Dalmatian frogs and Common brown frogs to approach.

Their numbers are simply impressive. In total thousands of them are on the move. And that is just the number along a rather short stretch of river that we were monitoring! And the good thing – the nature park administration has put up fences along the roads to save thousands of lives! However, there are still so many road victims…

For those who make it to the lakes and ponds in the valley, it is all about mating and spawning.

Stay tuned for more images to come.
