Autumnal Frogs (and padding characters demanded)

In the latest British Wildlife (34.3 - British Wildlife | Natural reflections) Brett Westwood raises an interesting question.
He has noted, for a few years now, common frogs calling in autumn. It’s at a lower intensity than the spring cacophony, and it may be related to day length - matching the springtime ‘trigger’. But it does seem to be a fairly recent phenomenon. Does anyone here recall autumn croaking from their youth?
As an aside, he also mentions that common toads are more agile than many think - they will climb quite willingly. Worth a read. (Readit! Readit!)
