One of the first amphibians to appear in the spring is the wood frog – and they were out in force last night, migrating from the woodlands where they live and hibernate to the ponds where they breed.

You can both hear wood frogs and see their sacs inflating by going to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qc_r2sfQUc .
