My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Common Frog (Rana temporaria) found throughout much of Europe as far north as Scandinavia and as far east as the Urals.
Other common English names include the European Common Frog, European Common Brown Frog and European Grass Frog.
This is a male croaking to attract a mate, their throats turn pale/white in the breeding season. Males take up residence in a suitable breeding site and croak to attract females.
This individual was photographed in a garden pond in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.
