Jersey toad

My British Animal Challenge list has just got a little longer, as last week it was announced that the toads found on Jersey are actually a separate species to those found in mainland Britain.

While it means I am a little further from completing my challenge, I am not too disappointed, as it’s an extra excuse to visit Jersey. I have never been to the Channel Islands before, but to complete my challenge I will need to visit Jersey and Guernsey to see a few species not found elsewhere, including:

  • Millet’s shrew
  • Greater white-toothed shrew
  • Guernsey vole
  • Green lizard
  • Agile frog
  • and now, the Jersey toad

Now I just need to find the time for a trip to the Channel Islands…
