Significant sighting

22 Mar 2016

The Green and Golden Bell Frog is believed to be extinct in the ACT, this would have been one of the last records of the species. It has a very distinctive call and perhaps the optimists amongst us can keep our ears open for it

So is this an old photo? EDIT: Never mind, just saw the "Recorded on" field on the right indicating 1976.

Yes, I have a large collection of slides dating back at least to 1976 which I am down loading as historical records, a few more to go yet but nearly finished!
