I had a report today of an unusual frog from North central Kent. I would presume it is one of our "green frogs" but, as you can see - a little unusual!

Any thoughts?

Hi Chris, as you know the green frogs are fiendishly tricky to tell apart, especially from a single photo, but I would go for marsh frog Pelophylax ridibundus, especially given the location.  Interestingly marked individual, for sure.
