Krkonoše frogs have started spring migration

The time has come for frogs to migrate to their spawning grounds. Ideal for them is a warm humid evening, when, driven by the reproductive instinct, they set out on a dangerous pilgrimage. Every year, many of them end up under the wheels of cars crossing roads.

Conservationists then go to check the barriers several times a day. In the current weather, there are not so many frogs, but when it rains, their number will double.
