Toad Hall

Spot a Toad

"Ribbit ribbit" said the frog to the toad.
"Riiiiiiiiibit off" said the toad to the frog, so the frog hopped off.

Wildlife lovers will revel in this event run in association with the BBC's Autumnwatch programme.

The Great Toad Extravaganza is an exciting opportunity to witness one of the biggest spectacles of natural migration in the Welsh countryside, as toads move to their spawning ground - the bogs and marshes where they lay their eggs.

The event is at Moelyci Environmental Centre in Bangor. Click here for a link to their website with more details and directions.

The event takes place tonight (Monday 5th March) and for the next 3 Mondays after that - last event 26th March. How many toads you'll see depends on the weather and other environmental conditions, so pop along a few times to really catch a toady glimpse!

Don't forget to take waterproofs and warm clothes, as well as wellies and a torch.
The event is free.
Time: 18:00 to 21:00
