About this book

They were bestowed with magical properties in folklore, they were sought after as ingredients of witches' broth, and they are comic characters that have invaded popular culture, from Kermit the Frog to Toad of Toad Hall. Frogs and toads are undoubtedly charismatic members of Britain's wildlife, but what do you really know about them?

Scratch beneath the surface, and you will discover some of nature's weirdest creatures, amphibians whose ecology we are only now coming to understand. Spotlight Frogs and Toads is a compelling account of Britain's four native amphibian species: the Common Frog, the Pool Frog, the widespread Common Toad and the rare and secretive Natterjack Toad.

Frogs and toads are on a downward spiral in the UK, and new research suggests that in the next ten years, three out of our four UK species are likely to be listed as threatened. They need help, and in addition to revealing a host of secrets, including how they migrate, what they eat, and how they got to the UK in the first place, Jules Howard will outline a fresh approach to conservation and inspire a generation of people to look down, rather than up, in spring.
