Smoooooth Newt

Okay, so I didn't get round to posting these when I said I would, but, Ive been super busy demonstrating on the MB1 course at the marine station. But here I am with one of my more secretive neighbours, a fab smooth newt (Lissotriton vulgaris)! Please forgive my sleepy demeanour, it was still early, but I'd been up for hours...


I have been up since 5 am... hence hugging my coffee and looking half asleep.

Remember that newts, should you come across one, are protected by law (and prefer to be left alone); however this they don't do too well on salty roads, so I gave this little gem a lift into the nearby marsh field.
