Cloudy and damp.

Frogs calling last night. Perhaps there will be more rain ? Scent of bush-fire smoke in the early morning air.

I am hoping someone will identify this frog for me. I am unable to find an adequate description. Another frog has appeared in the nursery bath. Very fast and have been unable to get a decent photo. Will post when I do.

Thank-you Ellen. the frog is a Mixophyes – probably M.balbus (Stuttering Frog) from the legs although the back looks like M.iteratus (Southern Barred Frog

    the frog is a Mixophyes – probably M.balbus (Stuttering Frog) from the legs although the back looks like M.iteratus (Southern Barred Frog) this latter being about 11cm. The former is reputed to have a short soft grating trill of c.10 pulses, the latter a deep gutteral grunt. Field Guide, Barker Grigg & Tyler.
