Festive Newt!


Just back in from a week away in The Algarve, South Portugal. Waiting for me was an email from Jim Dunkley with some images of a Common Newt active in his garden on Christmas Day (please see below). Wet weather and mild conditions often cause these amphibians to go hunting for invertebrate prey even in the winter but I don't think I have ever seen one on Christmas Day! Such is this winter's wild and wacky weather!
