Common Frog (Rana temporaria)
Common Frog, Edinburgh, Scotland, March 2001 - click for larger image The Common Frog is widespread and abundant in the British Isles and most of Central and Northern Europe. It is rarer in Spain, Portugal, Italy and the Balkans where it is only found in mountainous areas.

They live for most of the year on land where they tend to remain well hidden. They are much more obvious in the spring, often in early March, when they find ponds in which to mate and lay their eggs.
