No problem Ginny (although the "wrong side of 65" excuse won't work - so am I ! Smile). Simply email it to me at admin@herpetofauna.co.uk and I will load it up for you.

All the best

Chris

welcome to the premier wild UK herps forum new members!

as previously stated, i had a couple of ruddies 2 years ago (my best year for frogs - about 100) and a reddish individual drowned in a mating ball in one of my ponds last year.
no reds at all this time tho'. nor any of the other unusual colours ive heard about/seen pix of. i havent had any of those anyway.
tho i like to see them!!

all the best,
ben

That's a pretty one. It looks a little reluctant to come out and have its photo taken.

Hi there

Thanks for the pic - this is definitely a common frog - and rather a splendid one colour-wise.
