Frogs and toads the gardener’s friends!24/04/2014
This year, as part of the Big Garden Birdwatch, the RSPB asked about the wildlife that visits our gardens – not just the birds. These results have just been released. More than half of us saw frogs and toads and on this edition of Nature’s Voice Jane Markham talks to Dr John Wilkinson from the Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust and to Mark Ward, Editor of Nature’s Home magazine, about the importance of our gardens when it comes to providing homes for wildlife. And as swallows and swifts start to arrive in the UK to breed the head of the RSPB’s migrants programme Danae Sheenan welcomes them back and talks about what we can do to protect them while they are here and on their long and perilous journeys.
