Found under a wheelie bin in my front garden. See also video at http://youtu.be/D5gxhtkvmpQ I originally thought it was dead as it was completely still and looked rather dry, but it moved when placed on my hand so I transferred it to some damp vegetation in the back garden. I can't see any gardens in my street that have a pond, so if it is a newt how did it get there and does it stand any chance of survival?
