Amphibian and Reptile Records 2000-2010
This is a summary of records dated 2000 – 2010 submitted to the HARG county recorder. There are more records pre-dating this and we are still receiving records for within this time period, therefore this is by no means a definitive record but gives a good indication of distribution and recorder effort

In total 11,101 records were submitted. It highlights areas were future survey could be focused to ensure representative coverage of the whole county.

The protocol this year has been slightly updated from that used in 2008 (based on results, feedback and lessons learnt in 2008).

  • 30 amphibians to be sampled per site (can be a mix of species)
  • Single survey between March and June (you can start as soon as you haveyour swab packs).
  • All samples collected on a single day/evening to avoid resampling.
  • No frogs!
  • No tadpoles! (post metamorphic animals only please)
  • Capture from the water (i.e. not migrating toads en route to the breedingponds)
  • Avoid contamination between animals
