After discovering some Peron’s Tree Frogs in our backyard during renovations, we quickly built a small pond (1.5 x 1m only) and put them in. Disappointingly, within 24 hours they had left. However, some weeks later we spotted tadpoles swimming around. Success! Over the past couple of years we seem to have cultivated a thriving local population. During Nov 2020, I spent many evenings in the dark by the pond taking photos and video, as well as recording their calls for submission via a mobile app to the Australian Museum’s national FrogID research programme (www.frogid.net.au). I could hear the same frogs calling several gardens away…all looking for a mate. I enjoyed observing these frogs and the night-time photography experience.
