Toad Patrol

The toads are on the move again, heading back to the breeding ponds. If you normally use Smallbrook Road as a short cut between Plants Green/ Gipsy Lane and Upper/Lower Marsh Road, please try to avoid doing so after dark, as up to 15% of the toads we find have been killed by passing cars, even though it’s now a 30mph road.

And keep an eye out for the Toad Patrollers who help the toads to cross safely!

Warminster Town Council are currently considering the temporary closure of Smallbrook Road next year, for a month in spring. This year there will be no road closure. We always welcome toad patrol volunteers, so if you are interested please contact warminstertoadpatrol@gmail.com
