Common frog?

We get these little sweetie pies in the garden, are they frogs? Green with stripes of sorts.

They are vey cute, we don't have a pond so they might just be passing through. :D

Yes, Common Frog Rana temporaria. They live on dry land for most of the year, only returning to their natal ponds to mate each Spring. They can be very variable in colour, but yours is fairly typical.

Will, it looks very common to me, I wouldn't want it in our garden. :wink: :)
Keep calm and carry on.

They'd need bullet proof vests, or they'd be shot like the pheasant. :(
Keep calm and carry on.
