I have posted the enhanced and ordinary photo. Quite difficult to get camera to focus on something underwater in dark pond but persistence worked.
Male with a crest. I don't know much about newts but it looks like the great crested newt on the FSC guide.

Thank you

I think it is the first time I have seen a newt apart from in the herons beak. I have looked in the same pond hopefully for a while and not seen anything but yesterday there were a lot to see when you got your eye in. I will add some of the ones I couldn't identify.
