Signs of Spring
In Herefordshire's Lugg Valley, Ellie Harrison helps volunteers protect toads, visits a community forest garden and joins an artist who sees beauty in the flooded landscape.
Ellie is in the Lugg Valley in Herefordshire, where recent heavy floods have left their mark. Despite this, she is on the hunt for signs of spring - not least toads. She joins volunteers making sure the amorous amphibians can make it safely across main roads to their favoured spawning grounds. Ellie also meets members of the community who have just planted out their first forest garden, and she joins an artist who sees beauty in the flooded landscape.
