The Term "non-native frog" is used to describe a member of the Marsh-Edible-Pool Frog complex (also called water frogs). These are difficult to identify in the field without either capturing them and measuring the length of their hind limbs, or analysing their calls. A colony of edible frogs was identified as living in the Reserve in 2012 by Ray Cranfield of the Essex Amphibian & Reptile Group and sightings of non-native frogs in the Reserve are now assumed to be edible frogs.
