I am enquiring about what type of small Frog/Toad would be active at this time of year because I came across one on a walk near Fleet, Hants the other day. It was black and only about 1/2" long - it seems strange to have babies at this time of year and so I wonder if it is an alien, miniature species?

Hi, sounds exactly like a young common toad (one of this year's toadlets); they are usually quite dark and will happily be out and about til the first November frosts send them underground.
