I found a newt

This little fella was hiding under 'Poached Egg' plant
I moved him onto the leaf of a water lily and he disappeared into the pond :)

"He" is probably feeling a bit embarassed.....I think she's a smooth newt!
Now you could try dipping a jar or clear plastic container into the water in the weed at the edge. Then lift up to the light and see if you've got any babies.

How brilliant. I haven't seen any for years in my pond. I hope you have got some babies Sam.

Hi, It might also be a palmate newt (sorry). Have you seen any males?
