About us

About Us

Welcome to CPARG - Cambridgeshire and Peterborough's local Amphibian and Reptile Group. ARGs are local, grassroots amphibian and reptile conservation groups spread out throughout the UK, usually organised by county. As a volunteer run group we get up to a whole range of activities – newt surveys, frogspawn counts, advice service, liaison with planning authorities and consultancies, data collection/collation, training, chytrid swabbing, talks and presentations. The opportunities are endless! Events are held on nature reserves and throughout the wider landscape, and while our focus is on Cambridgeshire there are good links between neighbouring ARGs with access to shared away-days, conferences and training available.

We are run by and for volunteers, and we'd like you to join. We're looking for members – people who might be interested in surveying, receiving training, attending talks, sharing their knowledge and experience, or getting involved in any way with amphibian and reptile conservation locally. We're also looking for new committee members to help with the running of the group, most importantly in organising and/or running events (surveys, training, talks, habitat management etc).

Although news hasn't been posted on our website for a couple of years now, we have been going strong on WordPress! We moved away from this platform and over to there shortly after out 2016 AGM when our new Communication's Officer then setup a WordPress blog due to the improved functionality over the blog system that is built into our site. Maybe we'll see the return to use using the home system as well but for now you can find out what we've been up to and what's going on here


Volunteers needed for the Big Spawn count!

Posted on Monday 14th March, 2016

It’s that time of year again – soon many garden ponds across the country will be bubbling with hundreds of croaking toads and frogs, and your help is needed to record all that spawn!

Amphibians are commonly found breeding in garden ponds, and data gathered by volunteers is vital in better understanding just how important gardens are for these species. Spawn counts can be used to estimate population sizes and species distributions, an important way of monitoring the status of our amphibians and identifying ways to better conserve them!

It’s really simple, all you have to do is fill in some basic information online; the size and depth of your pond, whether the pond has fish in it, and how much spawn (frog or toad) you can see!

 

Check out the Fresh Water Habitats website here for more details!


Cambridge toads are on the move!

Posted on Tuesday 8th March, 2016

As the evenings are very slowly getting warmer, toads have been awakening from their sleepy slumber and are now on the move! Their migration from hibernacula to natal spawning ponds can however be lengthy and pretty treacherous. Unfortunately many breeding ponds are now surrounded by an urban environment, making road crossing a necessary, but perilous task.

Toads on Roads and Toad Size are two projects aiming to alleviate and better understand the risk of roads on toad populations. Volunteers collect toads from road sides and help them safely reach their pond for breeding. The level of traffic flow and number of deceased individuals found is also recorded. The Toad Size project involves the measuring of male toads at these road sites to determine whether road mortality is influencing the age structure of populations. Preliminary results show the importance of frequent toad patrols for reducing mortality and enabling a more varied age structure, and the impact of crossing distance on toad size.  Further research is however needed from more sites across the country.

So we at CPARG have just begun Toad Patrol and Toad Size activities for the year, with three outings so far. This is the second year of Toad on Road activities at this specific site, and the first year we have been collecting data for Toad Size.  Our first visit resulted in 152 males safely delivered to the pond. Visit two was on a fairly cold night and resulted in a much more modest number of 19, with 1 of these being scooped out from the depths of a drain, whilst visit number 3 saved 119 toads.

Have you been out helping toads cross roads? Or have you seen sites that could do with some assistance? Let us know! For more information about these projects, check out the website links below, or for more specific Cambridge related queries, contact our Toads on Roads Officer Mark Goodman at digital.chameleon@hotmail.co.uk.

CPARG volunteers help manage ponds for great crested newts (and other amphibians!)

Posted on Tuesday 8th March, 2016

Careful pond and land management is needed to ensure the persistence of amphibian populations in the UK, especially for the Great crested newt (GCN), a species that has seen rapid declines in the past 50 years.  Threats facing amphibians in the UK are largely linked to agricultural intensification, pollution, disease and the introduction of non-native species such as ornamental fish.  Great crested newts have been largely effected by these changes due to their specialist habitat requirements.

The cement-lined ponds at Cambridge city crematorium have been monitored for amphibians since 2013. It was then that CPARG investigated a possible GCN sighting and were pleased to confirm a breeding population of the species, as well as a healthy population of smooth newts.

As appropriate management of remaining GCN populations is important, in early January CPARG volunteers gathered at this GCN site to give the ponds some TLC. An ideal pond for GCN has both extensive submerged and floating aquatic vegetation as well as more open areas for males to woo the ladies with their mating displays. To improve these ponds we therefore dragged out dead vegetation that had been clogging them up, reducing the quality of the habitat and making population monitoring difficult.

We carefully checked and recorded all the material being removed from the pond for life; we found an array of invertebrates including water boatmen and dragonfly larvae, as well as two GCN, three smooth newts and one common frog.

Now the dead vegetation has been removed and the live vegetation trimmed a little, the plants needed for newt egg laying will be able to better flourish and hopefully we’ll see the benefits of our labour later this year during the survey season!

 

Do you know of any great crested newt populations? Let us know! For more information about how to effectively manage your garden pond for amphibians, check out the Froglife website here.


Frogwatch – Big Garden Spawn Count Volunteers Needed!

Posted on Saturday 28th December, 2013

Do you have a garden pond?  Do you ever see frogs in your garden?

 

Lots of people would answer yes to at least one of these questions but unfortunately conservation organisations know very little about where frogs are found or how well they’re doing.  But as urban dwellers as well as rural, frogs offer a great opportunity for the public to get face-to-face with wildlife and to contribute to its wellbeing.  For two years the Freshwater Habitats Trust (formerly Pond Conservation) has been running a simple project to make this link. 

Members of the public who are lucky enough to spot frog spawn in their ponds are asked to fill in a simple online record form which then gets logged with others across the country to help answer these questions!  This survey will also pick up on any toadspawn present…but it doesn’t look out for newts so we should still promote either Record Pool or CPERC to capture these records:

http://www.freshwaterhabitats.org.uk/projects/big-pond-dip/big-pond-spawn-count/

http://groups.arguk.org/CPARG/ or http://www.cperc.org.uk/submit-records/submit-single.php

The data from this survey will then be shared with county-based organisations to help fill in some of the gaps on their local frog maps.

This year Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Amphibian and Reptile Group (CPARG) will be promoting this project within our Cambridgeshire patch, contributing both to answering the big questions nationally (e.g. what sort of ponds do frogs like) and providing our partners at CPERC with up-to-date records of breeding frogs.

We’re looking for a team of confident volunteers to send out press releases to local media (online, papers, radio and TV) and to be available for interview to promote this project, CPARG’s other survey opportunities, and amphibian and reptile conservation generally.

If you might be interested in pitching this conservation message to local media please email us on candparg@googlemail.com and CC in paul.furnborough@sjc.oxon.org or call Paul for an informal chat on 07508020437.

This project would suit confident, friendly-sounding people either with or who would like to get some media experience.

Frogs could start breeding as early as February – or even sooner if we have a mild winter/early spring – so we’d like to have people signed up and ready to be interviewed by the end of January if possible.  Good luck spreading the frog-count word!

Castor Palmate Project

Wed 1st January, 2014 - Mon 30th June, 2014

A team of ARU student members are co-ordinating the Castor Palmate Newt Project – aiming to see how far beyond the known population at Castor Hanglands National Nature Reserve (NNR) this species’ distribution might reach.

Palmate newts are very rare in Cambridgeshire with only two records showing on the CPERC database from 1950-2012! One of the few sites this species is known at is Castor Hanglands NNR, managed by Natural England. In 2012 CPARG led an amphibian ID and survey session which inspired a group of us to go on and survey all the ponds here for palmates. Castor Hanglands once again earned its reputation as a top site, with all five widespread amphibians found and several ponds showing palmates, even on these late-season surveys.

Palmate newts are easily overlooked and can be mistaken for the more common smooth newt, but we know they’re present in the area and a skilled or trained eye can pick out the differences easily. This year we’d like to spread our net wider than the nature reserve and see whether the newts are surviving in the wider countryside.

The co-ordinators will contact members closer to the survey period with details on volunteer survey sessions. The project itself will follow two stages:

Stage 1:

  • · Identifying from googlemaps (both aerial and map views) ponds in the surrounding area: http://goo.gl/maps/qbUkq
  • · Identifying further ponds from OS maps (which CPARG can provide)
  • · Identify landowners for these ponds
  • · Contacting landowners to request permission to survey
  • · Updating the CPARG Committee on progress or problems

Stage 2:

  • · Organise an amphibian/palmate newt survey and training day for CPARG members
  • · Undertake and/or co-ordinate sufficient and varied newt surveys at each of the sites to confidently confirm presence/absence of palmates
  • · Collate and digitise all data from this project
  • · Share the data with CPERC

To express interest in this project please email candparg@googlemail.com and cc paul.furnborough@sjc.oxon.org or call Paul on 07508020437 for an informal chat.


Habitat Management: Hampton Nature Reserve, Peterborough

Thu 9th January, 2014 - Sat 29th March, 2014

When: Sessions are held every Thursday 10AM – 3PM and two Saturdays/month 9.30AM – 3.30PM.

These include the following Saturdays: 18th Jan; 1st Feb; 15th Feb; 1st March; 15th March; possibly 29th March.

Where: We meet of Nature’s Way (J2 of the parkway – the ‘i' on this map: http://goo.gl/maps/qXdGp)

Booking essential: email paul.furnborough@froglife.org

Cambridgeshire plays host to the world’s biggest colony of Great Crested Newts at Hampton Nature Reserve (HNR)/Orton Brickpits (SSSI/SAC). It is managed by Froglife on behalf of the landowners O&H Hampton Ltd. Over winter Froglife volunteer teams are active every Thursday and two Saturdays per month managing the site. This mostly involves clearing scrub and brash and burning it off on a bonfire – which subsequently involves baked potatoes and fillings (feel free to bring bacon, marshmallows etc). This work is done to prevent scrub from dominating the site by maintaining a mosaic of open areas, young, dense regrowth and older scrubland features to maintain good conditions for newts, reptiles and other wildlife.

Please bring:

  • · weather appropriate clothing – suitable for hot/cold/dry/wet accordingly
  • · footwear with decent grip/ankle support (wellies or walking boots usually)
  • · a packed lunch
  • · plenty of fluids (I bring hot water but a lot of volunteers prefer their own home brew)
  • · hand wash (the sort which doesn’t need water)
  • · I’ll bring work gloves and tools as required, plus biscuits and hot drinks

Please note CPARG is promoting these herp conservation days but they are Froglife sessions, so you don’t need to be a CPARG member to attend.


Work Party: Habitat Management at Stanground Newt Ponds

Sat 11th January, 2014

Stanground Newt Ponds have been monitored for newts since their inception, and provide a long-term dataset not only for newt abundance but also for tunnel crossings. It also hosts new ‘newt-friendly’ kerbstones to usher newts around the drainage-hole trap. Having begun surveying on the site last year CPARG will be ‘adopting’ Stanground Newt Ponds as a favoured site for monitoring and management, working hand-in-hand with the Wildlife Trust to get the site into top condition for newt breeding and surveying.

Join us on Saturday 11th January and Saturday 22nd February to shake off the New Year’s cobwebs and return to Stanground newt ponds to continue to remove the scrub which is over-shadowing the ponds on this Wildlife Trust site. We’ll also clear some of the emergent vegetation to give us better viewing stations into the pond to make surveying easier. The session will start at 10AM and continue until we get tired and want to go home, probably around 3PM before it gets too dark.

We will have a fire to burn off all the brash so potatoes are on the menu, but please bring sausages, bacon or marshmallows if you’d like to cook more exotic bonfire foods too!

Tools and gloves will be provided, as will hot drinks and biscuits, but please bring weather appropriate clothes, cold drinks and a packed lunch. If you've got a camping chair please bring that for lunch-time too.

PCV have a map to the site here:

http://www.p-c-v.co.uk/html/body_newtpond.html

If you'd like to come to either session please email me to book on so that I can co-ordinate numbers with PCV: candparg@gmail.com.

The event is free, though you would need to either be a member or sign up on the day (membership is £5, and as we'll be into the quiet season for herps will last until March 2015).

Trevor Beebee Talk

Mon 17th February, 2014

40 years of amphibian conservation in Britain

Serious amphibian conservation in Britain has a forty year history, initiated primarily by the British Herpetological Society after 1970. By then it was apparent that agricultural intensification starting during the second world war had precipitated declines in all our native species. Problems for British amphibians therefore predated 'global amphibian declines' and had relatively simple causes, notably habitat destruction and modification. Pesticides, acid rain, UV irradiation, climate change and disease have thus far proved relatively minor issues. Conservation of British amphibians started in the 1970s, initially just with status surveys but by the 1980s research into habitat requirements and proactive management was underway, particularly for the rare natterjack toad Bufo calamita. The relatively widespread great crested newt Triturus cristatus was given the same legal protection as B. calamita in 1981 mainly due to declines elsewhere in Europe, a problematic situation for conservationists due to the large number of sites in the UK which regularly comes under threat from development. Additional difficulties identified in the 1990s included serious impacts of road mortality on common toads Bufo bufo. A previously unrecognised rare native, the ‘northern clade’ of pool frogs Pelophylax lessonae became extinct in the early 1990s but was reintroduced in the 2000s. New (post 1989) organisations, especially Amphibian & Reptile Conservation and the county Amphibian and Reptile Groups, have benefitted UK herpetofauna substantially. Nevertheless, conservation efforts have stabilised but not increased the UK B. calamita population while some of the widespread species are probably still declining albeit at a much slower rate (possibly excepting B. bufo) than in the post-war period. Effective methods for amphibian conservation are now available and the main outstanding question is whether there will be sufficient resources to make greater gains in future. The talk will be about an hour long but we may overrun slightly. Afterwards there will be a chance to ask Trevor Beebeeany questions you may have.

Venue: Jordan Room, Romsey Mill, Hemingford Road (just off of Mill Road), Cambridge, CB1 3BZ.

Parking: Nearest car park is Queen Anne's Terrace Car Park, Cambridge, CB1 1ND. The car park is about a 15-20 minute walk away from our venue. Night time parking costs are quite cheap. Some of the near-by roads may also have some spaces for people to park. 

Time: 7:30pm start, arrive a little earlier to find a seat and grab some refreshments.

Price: Free to CPARG members.

CPARG AGM & Talk 2014

Wed 19th March, 2014

CPARG will be holding it's annual AGM at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge on the 19th March 2014. The AGM will run from 7pm until around 7:30pm. From here on a talk will be given until about 8:30pm with time for questions afterwards.

The AGM and talk will be held in the Lord Ashcroft Building in room 221. The room will be signposted so those who aren't familiar with the layout of the building can still find their way. 


Great Crested Newt Training Day

Sat 29th March, 2014

The great crested newt training day will be run by Froglife in Peterborough on Saturday 29th March. The session will run from 10AM until 10PM with classroom theory in the morning/afternoon and survey practical in the evening. The evening session often over-runs because participants get quite enthusiastic about spotting newts 

The classroom is located at Froglife HQ, 1 Loxley, Werrington, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, PE4 5BW.

The fieldwork will be based on the Hampton Nature Reserve, Peterborough – home to the world’s largest colony of great crested newts.

The day long course content covers:

  • ID
  • Ecology
  • Habitat Creation and Restoration
  • HSI
  • Legal Protection
  • Survey Techniques and Translocation Methods (with a focus on surveys)
  • Biosecurity
  • Bottle trap and egg-strip making (optional)

The surveys will include such methods as: hand searching, egg searching, netting, torching and bottle trapping.

The course is designed to be suitable for people of all skill levels, from never having even seen a newt right through to having spent a decade working with them.

The course price is £15 for non-consultant CPARG members (membership is £5) to support local survey efforts.

To enquire further or to book a place please email paul.furnborough@froglife.org with GCN Training 2014 in the subject line and specify whether you are a consultant, a (prospective) CPARG member or an active Froglife volunteer.


Wildlife Trust Training Workshop: Introduction to Amphibians

Sat 12th April, 2014

The workshop will cover the identification, life histories and habitats of our native amphibians and surveying for the protected great crested newt including health and safety and legislation. Participants will gain experience in assessing habitats and surveying for great crested newts on this former brickyard.

The workshop will run from 3:15pm to around 9:15pm at Ramsey Heights, Cambridgeshire.

Pond Project

Pond Project

Recent research as identified that urban ponds provide numerous and diverse roles including their ecological function with good quality ponds acting as stepping-stones and refuges for wildlife species within a suriunding of otherwise inhospitable habitat. With this in mind, we are currently looking to find out where all of Cambridge's urban ponds are in an attempt to learn more about the potential dispersal routes of the City's amphibians. It is important to know both where amphibians breed (in terms of public areas) but also where they may also hibernate, which is usually away from breeding ponds and in gardens. Of course amphibians will also breed in garden ponds too and this is useful additional information that we are hoping that you, the constituents of Cambridge will be able to help provide us with. If you're happy for us to make a visit to your garden to survey the pond or give you some advice on how to improve your pond or garden or amphibians then please also let us know of your address. If this is not the case, then please provide us with a grid reference of your pond's location which you can easily find using this free online tool.

IMGP2302

Even small garden ponds like the one above can offer plentiful opportunities for amphibians to breed and feed. If you do have a garden pond, the please do get in contact and let us know what species of amphibians you find in it, whether it is stocked with any fish, how old the pond is and how big it is. It is hoped that this information will be used to help inform planning and management of urban areas within Cambridge to benefit amphibians and other wildlife which tend to share the same corridors.

Disclaimer: Any data you share with us will not be shared with any third party groups without your permission first.

Toads on Roads

Toads on Roads is a national initiative which aims to help set up and manage toad crossing across the country. Roads are a huge issue for amphibians, with the main threat being that of cars. Roads bisect amphibian migration routes between breeding ponds and over-wintering sites and so the aim of a toad crossing is to help as many toads as possible make it to the other side of the road. There are a number of registered toad crossings within the county, with one of CPARG's most active ones is in central Cambridge. We are looking for volunteers to help organise other crossings in their towns and villages with CPARG helping to support them where we can. If you'd like to know more, please contact Sarah Coulson.

Cambridge Midwife Toads

Since 2015 CPARG has been monitoring the population of midwife toads (Alytes obstetricans) in central Cambridge. The study first started out as a population assessment but then quickly transformed into a disease monitoring exercise. It was feared that when the toads were introduced that they may have been infected with infectious diseases that are deadly to amphibians. These do not affect humans but they have caused huge declines in species around the world. Fortunately so far  no toads have come back positive for the amphibian chytrid fungus (Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis). We'd like to thank the local residents for allowing us access to their gardens to carry out this important research. If you'd like to know more then please contact Steven Allain.
