Calls given by frogs/toads can be useful in identifying aliens. Below are the calls of five non-native species. Our native common frog and common toad breed early in the spring and do not have very loud calls. The alien species, on the other hand, breed in late spring or early summer and call loudly at this time as well as sporadically through the warmer months of the year.
