Frog-catch drive hops into action

Organisers hope to catch about 200 frogs

Wildlife enthusiasts in Sheffield are taking part in a project to rescue frogs from a city meadow.

The amphibians at Sunnybank Nature Reserve need to be removed from the grass as it is about to be mown.

Children are among the volunteers who have been helping the Sheffield Nature Trust find the animals and return them to their pond.

The trust's Hannah Wittram said: "It has been a very popular event. People go hopping mad for it."

Organisers hope to rescue about 200 frogs from the meadow.
