FARG member Dave had a look under some sheets where Great Crested Newts had been found earlier in the springThere were none there this time although there were about a dozen Toads, ranging in size from this year's hatchlings to three year olds like thhis one pictured.
No live newts of any species were seen but on one of the boards was this almost complete newt skeleton; it could be any of the three species.
Please email any amphibian or reptile records from the Fylde to fyldearg @ gmail.com (without the spaces) with the species, date, location and finders name (if your not sure of the species please send us pictures if you have them...Many thanks.
