North Pond toadlets and froglets.

Sunrise: 04.47    Sunset: 09.36

Today was June’s Wilden Marsh Conservation Sunday Workday: a very hot, sunny, and sweaty workday.

The task was reopening a 2 metre wide, very overgrown,  track-way along the southern  end of the North Pond chain.  So, saplings, small trees, brambles, and thistles were removed with bow saws, long-handled slashers and loppers – a high energy, but healthy activity.

Mark (Hawkeye) Darby demonstrated his superior eyesight by  spotting froglets and toadlets throughout the day – they were tiny, well camouflaged, numerous, and very quick on their feet.
