What’s happening with Amphibian Watch!

Amphibian Watch is part of wider campaign - linking in with a national Pond conservation survey on amphibians, including when spawn is first appearing in 2012.  Enter any sightings you have by filling in the form here, or fill in a more thorough survey by visiting the Wildlife in the Wetlands and Wildlife in the City Frogspawn survey.

All city results will appear on this map, which will give us a clear view of which amphibians are visiting which places in the city - you will be amazed at how many urban amphibians there are!

This is the perfect time of year to get involved! Our amphibian friends are visiting ponds to breed, which makes them really easy to spot.  You may also see spawn and tadpoles - tell us these sightings too.

Get involved and tell us what you have seen!
