This pic was actually taken in July 2013. The marsh frog isn't a native species but is worth seeking out. These frogs can be found in the ditch immediately behind Chesil Beach just West of the car park at West Bexington. They spend most of their time out of the water and their presence is usually announced by a very distinctive "plop" as you walk past and disturb them. They are at least 50% larger than the native common frog and marked with a distinctive yellow line running down their back. They have warty skin and black spots which show up much better when the frog is in the water (see my other pic). Tadpoles are very large, being about 4cm long.
Dot Moth, Purple Clay and Lobster Moth all nfy in total of 60 moths of 39 sps last night #teammoth
