On Tuesday last week within Nowogród Bobrzański quarry regarding herpetofauna, only few juveniles of Water Frogs (Pelophylax spp.) were active. They were basking as they are probably still actively foraging before going into hibernation (winter sleep) like other Polish amphibians and reptiles. Local herpetofauna and other animals, for hibernacula (wintering places) will likely use heaps of stones that we created as part of our project. We encourage you to also create such wintering places and dead hedges for animals in your gardens!
