Marsh Frog – Pelophylax ridibundus

This species of frog was introduced to the UK in the 1930’s it is now spreading its territory. This marsh frog photo was taken At Purfleet, Essex
London, England at a reserve called Rainham Marshes where they have bred to a very large population. These Big frogs become quite vocal at spring and this one was making a getaway after being spotted.

Taken with a Canon 7d with a 100-400L series lens.
