Looking at the orange mark

Looking at the orange mark behind the head I would say it is a juvenile common newt. If you add a revised identification for common newt and press the 'get recommended' button it will add the scientific name Lissotriton vulgaris and link up to other observations.

P.S. Common newt and smooth

P.S. Common newt and smooth newt are different names for the same animal.
