On yer trike

Amphibians can turn up in some straange and bizarre places so keep your eyes peeled.
These Smooth Newts were found by a FARG member when he was doing some work at a friend's house. Rummaging around at the back of the garden he came across an old child's tricycle discarded in the undergrowth. 
The trike had a small basket on the back for carrying exotica like teddy-bears, dolls and the like but now a little water held these two beauties. They must have climbed up the vegetation to get in but the steep slippery sides meant they were trapped in there.
Thankfully they have been released and entered into the Record Pool.

So there you have it keep those records coming in.
