Found in a natural pond, Hersham Riverside. Many adult Common frogs and Marsh frogs also. Warm and sunny day. This froglet was in shallow water amongst the vegetation when I caught it. It hopped happily away when released.

Marsh Frog froglet

Thanks for your help, your info really makes sense. I assumed it was a young common frog, not very sensible! I totally agree now it is a marsh frog froglet.

juveniles are tricky

Juvenile amphibians and reptiles are generally a lot more difficult to identity as they haven't yet developed as many diagnostic characteristics as the adults. So I wouldn't be too hard on yourself!
