More images and another video from my recent trip to the Monadhliath mountains in the Scottish highlands - this time it’s from a pool full of frisky frogs! This was a totally unexpected encounter and I was surprised to find so many frogs up there - I wonder if they gain some specific advantage by being up high on the hill?
Great pictures and video thank you. The frogs mating sound to me is like a small motor boat engine..I don't know if this is a good description!!! I have a garden pond full of them every year and the sound travels. Maybe less predators up high on the hill more chance of spawn , tadpoles survinging ?! I really don't know.

Yes, it was nice to see the variation in theor colouring.. Ooh, the dreaded midge - I hope they do their very best in eating as manyu as they can! Having had a mild winter, they're expected to be pretty fierce this summer... Cheers, Geoff
