Welcome to Wild In Britain, an occasional and irregular photo journal of my encounters with all types of wildlife in the British Isles. All species featured on the site are wild, and all photographs are the copyright of Ben Locke. For prints and licensing click here. Please also take a look at my main site BenLocke.co.uk
This Pool Frog was photographed at an undisclosed site in Hampshire. They are particularly rare, once presumed extinct. Small ponds adjacent to woodlands or in meadows are the preferred habitat although the Pool Frog may inhabit larger ponds if in a mixed population with edible frogs.
