Loud Croaking Frogs out yet at Seleger Moor???

Does any one know if the loudly croaking frogs are out yet at Seleger Moor?

It's fun to take small children if you can get the timing right.

There only seems to be a couple of weeks a year when they are loud.

Any advice?

The love song hasn't started here yet, I'm waiting with baited breath. I have permission to pick up some frogspawn as long as I use the water from the pond to top up the tank every day. I will also have to bring the tiny frogs back, they are a protected species here in Switzerland.

I run a playgroup and base my curriculum on the seasons so metamorphosis is a highlight for me. Cant wait!

They are croaking loud and clear in Haute Savoie, France (near Chamonix) where I work at a small lakeside resort every weekend

Too cold here so they have not started yet. It only lasts for a couple of weeks- so chill and let it be.

We have a big pond in front of our apartment. So far the noise of the frogs at night is quite nice. Ask me again in a month...

Used to have the same scenario in Mozambique, when I was there. The swimming pool at the little complex I was staying at in Songo was literally full of croaking and breeding frogs.

ALL night.

EVERY night.

Needless to say, the frogs were the sole users of the swimming pool..

Re: Loud Croaking Frogs out yet at Seleger Moor???

Just bringing back this thread to say that not only are the frogs croaking at Seleger Moor, but the rhodies and azaleas are in excellent form! I'll post up a couple of photos once I've downloaded them, but if you're looking for a few nice hours to spend in colorful mother nature, now is the time to visit

Aww, thanks, gonna try to make it over there. Did they just start blooming? That place is magic and rhododendron belong to my favorite plants - in masses like at Seleger Moor it's like paradise.

I'd say that they are in mid-peak. Some plants were done (mostly the azaleas) and some hadn't yet bloomed. Here are some pics from today, to give you an idea of the status
















Anyway.... I have more pictures but I doubt that anyone needs/wants to see more Enjoy yourself if/when you go!

Re: Loud Croaking Frogs out yet at Seleger Moor???

FYI Seleger Moor will hit it’s peak at the end of May. We’ve been 5 times in the last 6 weeks (bought the abo) and watched everything unfurl and spring to life. Also saw and heard our first frogs today so probably another couple of weeks for them too. If you can get there are 8am on a Sunday morning the place is deserted and a joy to behold. The place is also doggy friendly.

Re: Loud Croaking Frogs out yet at Seleger Moor???

Big Thanks. Very Helpful. Perfect for all ages.



However, my great love for the frogs sn't strong enough to get up on a Saturday morning at 8am.
