Watch your step

I noticed last Friday (8th July) that with the heavy rain, this year’s crop of amphibians were fledging and on the move, so if you’re near water – like the canal towpath, here at Anchor Bridge, take care where you put your feet. These guys were about the size of a shelled peanut, but they had bags of life.

In a puddle on the towpath just past Anchor Bridge, Brownhills. 5:03pm, Friday, 8th July 2011.

There were probably about thirty of the little fellows, just past Anchor Bridge, Brownhills. 5:03pm, Friday, 8th July 2011.

I wonder how many of these intrepid young amphibians will survive to mate next year? Just past Anchor Bridge, Brownhills. 5:04pm, Friday, 8th July 2011.

    Ditto the Clayhanger – Brownhills Black Path – very difficult to avoid stepping on one on damp evenings
