Amphibians, reptiles and butterflies seen in first warm weekend

Amphibians are turning up in ponds now and withy the warm weekend 8/9th March there should now be a lot of activity. There is a good amount of Frog spawn in my pond.

There are three newts in the Borough, the protected (because it is rare), Great Crested Newt (you need a licence to handle it) and these two:

Common Lizards have also been seen and a number of butterflies came out of hibernation. It could all go disastrously wrong of course with a cold snap, but let’s enjoy it for now.
