After tidying up a bit in the garden the other day, I had some bigger bits of prunings that seemed worth keeping for firelighting.  I was just about to drop them onto the logpile when I spotted this:

I think we were equally surprised. Does not look the sort of frog I usually get in the garden, but I'm no expert.  It seemed to be enjoying the sun, and stayed for quite some time before I could finish off my tidying.

Oh I do love frogs (& toads), what a lovely picture.
We have hundreds of frogs here, just common or garden type but I'm always amazed at the variations in colour - some are very orange or yellow but I've never seen one as yellow as yours. I'm not sure but I don't think there are any other frog species in the UK, unless there are some alien escapees.

Frogs seem to like my woodpiles.  Splitting up some of my pear wood at the allotment, I disturbed this fella:

Looks like he is fat on slugs and snails !  He didn't hang around for me to get a better picture though.

We've been having a very toadsome season. I've come across loads from teeny ones to massive waddlers. I went out of the door a few nights ago when it was drizzly and I think it must have been a Weight watchers meeting for toads.

I wonder if they have chameleon-like tendencies. The first yellowy frog was on yellowy wood; the brown one on the brown soil.

We love our froggies here too! All sizes and quite a variation in colouring though nothing as yellow as that one. Have only ever seen a couple of toads here.
