Frog Nights

Time of year

Just after the first summer rains, you can hear frogs starting to call in the
wetlands all around us. Every year we host a frog festival, the first weekend in
December, when we go out to catch and identify the frogs. We have 13
species of frogs already identified in our lake district.
