However, I think frogs can change sex from male to female
depending on the temperature so it's probably possible to work
out the likely ratio of female to male at a given temperature.

Have you any corroboration for that?
Temperature will certainly dictate sexual activity but I doubt they
change sex.

AFAIR temperature can affect the sex of amphibians while they're in
the egg, though not once they hatch.
