Common Frog ? Anna Marrett

Surveying for the Hertfordshire Mammal, Amphibian and Reptile Atlas project (Herts MARA) has entered its final year ? and special efforts are being made to ensure we finish with the best possible county-wide coverage.

Please be sure to submit your sightings, including roadkill, tracks and other signs such as molehills. Records of common species like Grey Squirrel and Rabbit are needed as well as those that are less usually seen. As spawning gets underway, the MARA team are also keen to hear from pond owners about any frogs, toads or newts.
