Julia Carey of the Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes Environmental Records Centre has asked for help to record frog and toad spawn.
We have been asked by the Freshwater Habitats Trust (Pond Action or Pond Conservation Trust for those of us who have known them a while…) to forward information on this year’s survey effort for frog and toad spawn. See below and attachments for information. Looks simple, and even the BMERC staff can manage this one!
If anyone has trouble opening the forms can they let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see if we can get a different version for you. If needed, I’m sure we can also print some paper copies for those who aren’t happy to record straight onto the web. The data will be collected direct by the FWHT, and once considered like other Record Centres we will welcome a copy of it back to local centres so whatever you capture will be back in Bucks later. No need to copy us in. NB for those not in Bucks, it doesn’t matter, the survey is national.
Given how warm and sunny it is today this may be of use sooner rather than later.
