The marsh cattle have returned from their four weeks jolly to Blackstone Reserve after the “Great Flood.” Waynetta is still lead cow, and the herd has settled in nicely. There is not a lot of grass around for the cattle to eat, but it is growing steadily now.
Although toad mating has not yet peaked on Wilden Marsh Nature Reserve, it’s frog and toad spawning galore in North Pond today.
North Pond is filling up wth mating toads. I videoed them under water this morning. The vid is a bit shaky and muffled in places because the pond weeds were interfering with my flippers.
The weather was cold but sunny today, so I moved the herd.
