The motorbike frog is a frog well known in Southwest Australia. It is a ground-dwelling tree frog of the family Hylidae, one of only three species of hylids occurring in that region. Its common name comes from the male frog’s mating call, which sounds similar to a motorbike changing up through gears; it is also known as Moore’s frog, the western bell frog, western green and golden bell frog, and western green tree frog.

Longleat

To wander through the sweeping corridors and grand rooms of Longleat House is to be transported back in time. Exploring this stunning example of high Elizabethan architecture – and the Capability Brown landscaped grounds surrounding it – is a day out in itself. It was substantially completed by Sir John Thynne in 1580. And today, his descendants are still lucky enough to call it their home.DSCN2030 (2)DSCN2032DSCN2059DSCN2065DSCN2074 (2)DSCN2045DSCN2053 (2)
