helping amphibians to survive

Little Melton Patrol

We help toads to reach the pond near the junction of School Lane and Green Lane.  There are folding toad signs that we open on nights when the toads are moving. 

We patrol for about 300m along the roads near to the pond and up the gravel track that leads off School Lane to White Lodge .

We aim to have two people out on each patrol and to have people on call to help on really busy nights.  We have a rota system so that people are only out for about 1 hour at a time.   New patrollers are given personal instruction by an experienced toader.  We can loan reflective waistcoats.

Traffic levels have increased a lot since the Village Inn has become more popular with people in Norwich and there is a lot of traffic at dusk when the toads are moving.
