The annual Watch Out, Toads About event will be taking place this Saturday and Sunday.

Katy Firth, of the Holyrood Park ranger service, said: “In winter the toads live around Arthur’s Seat and Dunsapie Loch. In order to get to where they spawn, they have to cross a public road with high kerbs.”

Willing volunteers should email [email protected] or call 0131-652 8150 for further information.
