© Since 2003 An exceptional collection of images of the common Frog Welcome to FrogsWatch

After the destruction of a number of ponds in my local area Wirral in the Northwest of England due to commercial development, I decided to build a pond in my garden and populate it with Frog spawn that I collected from the doomed ponds.

The exercise was a success and I added to the gene pool when a local garden centre offered Frogs spawn free to good home. After a number of years I have a large and thriving Frog community.

I have photographed since 2003 and they have been the main prompt for me to build . The photographs are displayed on these Web Pages, along with some additional  information that I have gathered.

All the frogs are the ‘Common Frog - Rana temporaria’ .
