Common frog (rana temporaria)

The common frog varies in colour enormously, from green to brown and even red or yellow. It has smooth skin, a dark ‘mask’ behind the eye and long back legs, covered in dark bands. It hops and jumps rather than walks and lays spawn in large jelly-like clumps.

Seen in my Chiswick garden in August 2021
