Most nights are too cold, but the warmer evenings bring lots out onto the streets. Luckily some dedicated new volunteers have turned up too.
They are also working with the council to put wire ramps in the drains to help stranded toads and expanding the search area with more volunteers. This year Helen predicts they need 16 people a night to take on shifts, and the more volunteers they have, the less everyone has to do.
They count every frog and toad to make detailed reports to Froglife, a UK-wide wildlife charity dedicated to amphibians and reptiles. Ecologists had previously been unable to find evidence of the newts in the area so the meticulous data collection of the Portishead Frog Patrol has helped there too. They also count the dead frogs and send off all the data to help form a national picture.
