Frogs a Pleanty

Rana temporaria (the common Frog) is britains best known amphibian. The spawning frenzy in our pond this morning was a joy to observe. I counted more than 30 frogs at one time, but the count was difficult due to the movement and the fact that individual frogs were submerged for part of the time. There could well have been more frogs. I also observed a pair of toads.
