10-04-2013 : JOIN IN WITH THE ANNUAL TOAD COUNT ON YOUR CANAL BOAT HOLIDAY

Canal Boat Holiday guests cruising the Dudley Canal next week are welcome to join the Canal and River Trust with their 2013 toad count.

Canal and River Trust ecologists will be at the Fen Pools near Dudley for an annual count of amphibian numbers.

Take along waterproof boots, warm clothes and a torch as you will be walking over the many pools to carry out an audit of the spawn numbers.

The annual count helps the Canal and River Trust with the long term monitoring of the protected species living on the canals and rivers.

The event held in the evening of 15th April is a great opportunity for nature lovers but if you cannot attend then your very own Nature watch will reveal itself on your Canal Boat Holiday.

Every day the canal, rivers and surrounding areas spring into life.

All of us are familiar with the ducks and swans but imagine the excitement of spotting a heron or spot a flash of blue as a kingfisher dart by.

The canals are easily accessible and free to explore and they are the ideal destination for nature lovers.

As you gentle cruise along the canals on your Canal Boat Holiday you will get back to nature and have a chance to see the wildlife close up.

The towpath is home to a huge variety of birds and animals and many rare species thrive in the safe haven that the canal bank provides .
