Bats

Any bat that is found on the ground, or in an exposed area, especially during the day, is likely to need help. f the bat is on the ground, on an outside wall, or in an exposed area where it may be vulnerable, it should be contained in a box (see the instructions below).

Amphibians

Common Toads are very particular about where they breed and often migrate back to their ancestral breeding ponds each year. They follow the same route, regardless of what gets in their way, which sometimes leads to them crossing roads. We get a toad vs. traffic scenario and the toads inevitably come off worse.  For info & advice contact Froglife
