With the schools back lots of the holiday makers have gone home and the New Forest was noticeably quieter today. A walk at Cadman’s Pool to enjoy the views and some sunshine.
Plus some wildlife spotting.

This year I have come across about 5 Toads one adult the others have been youngsters
Toad tadpoles look very similar to frog tadpoles except toad tadpoles have bulkier heads and shorter tails, young toads are known as toadlets. They leave their spawning pond in May and head off into the big wide world.
A very short Toadlet film.
