This may also be a pool frog (Pelophylax lessonae), one of the parental frogs of Pelophylax esculentus which is a hybrid. The distribution is similar to that of the Edible frog and and both species show a similar range of colourings. Lessonae has a larger metatarsal tubercle but these are not visible on the picture.
