Eastern Dwarf Tree Frog

The eastern dwarf tree frog (or eastern sedge-frog) is a small and very common species found on the east coast of Australia.  Usually found sheltering in shrubs and fern fronds, they only grow to about 25mm in length.  This cute little guy was photographed in our garden at Port Stephens.

Grey tree frog

Hearing a loud croaking noise last night, we ventured outside to try and identify the source.  Switching on the spotlights, we saw this beautiful little grey tree frog sitting on the edge of our water bowl. It probably wasn’t happy with our presence but didn’t move as I took a few photos.

Frog ponds and frog spawn

Having frogs about means the environment is in a healthy state. These tiny eggs – frog spawn – will soon hatch into tadpoles and populate this pond in my daughter’s garden.  Nardoo, duckweed and hornwort are some of the aquatic plants featured.  The large water bowl has a submerged pot of Phalaris arundinacea.
