Me too. Further the frog CD-Rom advertised by the National Georgraphic
Magazine is, I was told by Websters, simply the frog part of the
Websters one.  

I've had to supplement it with the Frogwatch tape, available from the
Bird Observers Club or the Victorian Frog Group, which is excellent for
the Victorian frogs.  

But otherwise I thought the Websters CD-Rom was excellent: good stuff
for kids and people new to frog watching, clever techniques for getting
lists of species in a geographical area as well as a plea for
recognition of the value of amateur naturalists.
