Great Crested Newt

We found this as we were clearing an old vegetation pile in the garden. We had just pitchforked it over a wall, and fortunately I saw it before I put the pitchfork in again. We didn't know about the need for licensed handlers until I got home and tried to identify it. At least we got it to crawl up onto a gloved hand so that we could move it out of danger.
