How can I find frogs in Cambridge?
I would like to photograph a lot of animals, and the only ones I have left are badgers, frogs, long-eared and little owls.
I already asked about the owls and let's just say didn't get the response I was hoping for.
The badgers are in a location I know but it is closed right now!
That leaves just frogs. I am not asking for pool frog locations, and I understand nobody would give me that anyway. I am asking for simple, common frogs, Rana temporaria.
Out of all the animals, this is the last one I expected to ask about.
Can anyone advise me how to find them? I have gotten up early and scoured Bramblefields, I visited Barnwell east and Byron's Pool, I scoured my garden, nothing!
The only time I saw frogs this year was one in March when one was jumping around near me as I waited for a bus and a dead skeleton of a frog on a road.
Has anyone seen frogs in cambridge this summer? are there any good sites?
Or, at least, how can I observe them, when, where?
Thank you very much!
For frogs - and herpetofauna in general - I recommend inaturalist.org - make a free account, go to "explore", zoom on the area you want to see and type "Frogs" into the species field, select a category level you are interested in. Cambridge area has a plenty of observations.
In general, this is a harder time for frogs than spring, but at least here in Poland some are still to be found, so you should try in the UK as well.
I go to Russia too and there is an overdose of frogs there, but mostly in August. Maybe it was just too hot for them- we have sub-30 degrees temperatures in the summer at times. Or maybe I didn't look well enough :)
