Salamanders at Ingelton Wells

It was a warm overcast evening at the Ingelton Wells Property with the Peterborough Field Naturalists. The ground was saturated with water throughout the forest and meadow. Had a great deal of success finding blue spotted salamander, red backed salamanders and 2 egg masses from spotted salamanders (One mass being infertile). Located a pair of buried wood frogs that did not survive the winter.

On the other side of the property It was possible to hear a modest chorus of spring peepers, distant coyotes, woodcocks, and what I believe was a great horned owl.
