Palmate Newt (Lissotriton helveticus)

Observation - Palmate Newt (Lissotriton helveticus) - UK and Ireland. Description: I regularly find these in the garden and it surprises me every time. They can't breed in the garden as there is no stream, pond or other static water but we find them almost every year. How do they get in? Climb the 6' stone walls?
