Our little favourite .

I have to say that the little Eastern Sedgefrog would come close to being our favourite frog. Firstly they are very cute and friendly . Unless you make a clumsy movement they generally let you get close with the camera without jumping off. They are quite often found resting in the daytime on a leaf or the stem of a reed. It's chirpy call is quite pleasant to listen to in the early evening. Hopefully if we get a little more rain with our spring storms they might breed. From what I've read Sedgefrogs like to breed from the end of winter onwards. the tadpoles need about 90 days to complete the cycle so they like to breed early.
