The Freshwater Habitats Trust is conducting a national survey to record the locations of frog and toad spawn until May for the third year running. If you find evidence of frog or toad breeding, you can report it to the Trust online, where you can also find resources on how to identify amphibians and how to find the grid references of the pond. See the results of last year’s survey here.
The Basildon Natural History society is always interested in hearing about wildlife sightings in and around Marks Hill Wood, you can report them online here.
