What we do
Frogs, Toads and Newts are all threatened by loss of habitat and by diseases introduced from abroad. Toads are more particular than frogs about where they breed and spend the winter further away from their breeding sites.
Many toads are killed when they cross roads to get back to their breeding pond in spring. Toadwatch volunteers help the toads to cross the roads safely - without this help many toad populations would become extinct. The Costessey Patrol have made two videos about their work. Please see About for more information.
The 2013 Migration finished in late April after a delayed start. See the map of the crossings that we patrol and contacts if you would like to help in Spring 2014. The patrols are also listed on Patrols page. Some patrols are holding get togethers to celebrate a successful migration which all are welcome to attend, these are listed on the Calendar.
Toadwatch features on the Radio 4 programme Costing The Earth in April/May 2013 and Radio Norfolk, Chris Goreham at Breakfast on 30th April 2013 will interview the Cranwich Patrol about their new fence.
