Today at 21:10 there was a single Spotted Salamander [yellow spotted salamander] crossing the road near my house heading north towards the breeding pond (Sumcot Dr., off Allen’s Rd. west of Buckhorn). Weather at the time was light rain and 3 C. There is still a considerable snow cover in the woods; about 2/3 covered in patchy snow which is at least 15 cm deep.
