Thanks Leanne.
It surprised me how green some were.

Thanks Argy Bee and Leuba. I went to Pyramid Hill to collect eggs of this species. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/849... Watch this space. There was a lot of waterbirds at Kows but not time left to stop.

Very nice find martin. It looks like they are quite small judging by the arthropod meals nearby. Interesting part of Vic to. I've often thought of spotting Kows out that way.

Thanks Nishant. It is curious that the spotted marsh frog may sometimes have a prominent central stripe. It's a very variable frog, even specimens under the same rock.
