This adult newt was found in the garden while moving soil into a skip. (The small white spots on the upper body are grains of sand.)

I have had a wildlife pond for more than 20 years, with Smooth and (mostly) Palmate newts - plus frogs and toads. No Great Crested newts have been seen to date, although a very large newt tadpole was seen briefly in the pond a couple of years ago.
