Parsley frogs at night, Lérouville, Lorraine, France on 5th June 2022 – by Colin Hunter

“The main goal of my trip to Lorraine in the east of France was to record Common Midwife Toads. The location was an old disused quarry just outside Lérouville and knowing the toads begin calling after dusk, I arrived early to have time to scope out the location. I was immediately greeted by a group of very vocal Parsley Frogs, their calls echoing around the quarry. I captured this recording much later that night, just after midnight, once the birds had fallen silent.”
