GREEN and gooey goings-on have been happening at an amphibian conservation event in Marsden.
The Pond Conservation group joined forces with British Waterways to hold the Green and Slimy event at Tunnel End Reservoir, Standedge, on Sunday.
Visitors were given a tour of where the reservoir's amphibian population lives and spotted some of the slippery creatures in their watery hideouts.
The reservoir has become a prime amphibian breeding area. It is particularly popular with toads.
Pond Conservation plans to create new ponds at the reservoir, in the hope of attracting a variety of wetland wildlife.
Spokeswoman Jenny Barr said: "The new ponds will encourage a more sustainable and diverse habitat for wildlife."
The new ponds are part of a wider conservation project being paid for by the Your Heritage lottery fund.
