Now that the frogs have finished spawning, the toads have started. All around the reserve they are pairing up and mating. Laying of their spawn should begin in the next few days. You need to watch out when you are walking around as there are toads everywhere!


A curlew was spotted on our new wet meadow today, getting us off to a good start.

Primroses are now in flower along the hazel coppice on Risedale Beck.

A Yellow Horned moth was found in our moth trap on Wednesday morning.
