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.
