My Newt!

It's back to the old joke...
"what do you call your pet?"
 "Why do you call him Tiny?"
                                                             "Because he's my newt!!"

That's the painful bit over with folks!!

When I came back to England I thought it was time I did a bit of pond tidying. The pond is not very large  because it's one I dug out myself a few years ago, but it attracts an amazing range of wildlife.

In the course of my labours I found there were several newts living there.

These, I think, are Common or Smooth Newt, and more can be read about them here.

As you can see, these two were swimming around happily (or they will be when I get them back into the pond) with the tadpoles..

Here's a close up through the glass tank...

Handsome fellow isn't he... or she?!
