The UK's rarest frog

Hannah Stitfall and a guest discuss one of her selections from the Living World archive. Today they eavesdrop on the search for the UK’s rarest frog, the pool frog.

New series in which Hannah Stitfall and a guest discuss one of her picks from the LIVING WORLD archive. Today they eavesdrop on an encounter at a secret location in Norfolk with the UK’s rarest frog, the pool frog. The frogs were introduced here from Sweden over a decade ago, after the last native East Anglian pool frogs died out in the wild and their progress has been carefully monitored. As well as the frogs there’s a very smelly encounter with a couple of grass snakes! Producer Sarah Blunt
