Newt

Observation - Newt - UK and Ireland. Description: Large newt in small garden pond. Looks much bigger than the smooth newts that we have many of. Is it a great crested newt (which aren't supposed to be keen on small ponds, but they are known to be in larger ponds nearby)? Poor photo as it was impossibl

Large newt in small garden pond. Looks much bigger than the smooth newts that we have many of. Is it a great crested newt (which aren't supposed to be keen on small ponds, but they are known to be in larger ponds nearby)? Poor photo as it was impossible to get closer (cropped shot), so the crest can't be seen clearly.
