Late newt

While out 'general naturing' PL looked under a sheet of tin hoping to find perhaps a surprise snake but more likely a Field Vole. Camera in hand he got a shot of this Great Crested Newt. He tells us the vole was too quick for him.

Not a bad swap.
It's not too late to send records of amphibians or reptiles, lots of this year's frog and toadlets have been on the move during the wet weather and improving weather with sunny spells reptiles may be tempted out to bask.

  1. We could do with one or two of these little fellas - they're trying to build on a field opposite my house and the prescence of these guys would halt preceedings!
