Dutch toad migration traffic sign

Toad traffic sign, The Hague

Beavers and stag beetles are not the only animals on traffic signs in the Netherlands. After seeing the stag beetle sign on this blog, photographer Lizia in The Hague sent me a photo she had made in Scheveningen. She made it at the Harstenhoekweg, not so far from Meijendel nature reserve.

The sign says: Drive slowly. Toad migration.

Every spring, many European toads and other amphibians migrate to water in the Netherlands.
