On Friday night I took Liam Russell to see the local population of Midwife Toads Alytes obstetricans. Again thanks to Alan Mosley for allowing us to search through his garden. Conditions were damp so ideal and there seemed to be more than usual calling, maybe as a result of a couple of mild winters and good summers. This time we found a couple of males carrying eggs, one fairly new and the second with well developed tadpoles inside complete with visable eyes. There were also a few common frogs and a common toad.
