  1. Lucky you, I believe newts are quite scarce in the UK now? Posted 4 years ago
    1. This species is definitely a bit less common but the smooth newt seems to be everywhere when i go out to look for them. I often go looking for these guys and out of all the smooth newts I have found this was my first and only great crested newt that i've found. Posted 4 years ago
