Pool rescue

A few showers of rain during the night had frogs out and about, however one made the wrong hop and ended in our pool, so required rescuing this morning from the skimmer box. This is a problem we haven't been able to completely solve. The morning check comes to the rescue and a relocation to the garden.

I had some trouble with the identification as there are a few species in the genera that are very similar and all have wide variations in their colouring. However working on the noted differences, this one seems to be a Dusky Toadlet Uperoleia fusca which is found down the coastal areas from mid Queensland to mid NSW.
