I just came across a new garden friend. There's a plentiful supply of food in my garden which (hopefully) should encourage him to hang around for a while. I've named him Newton
Anyone have any tips on how to keep him around the place?
Log piles in damp corners and flat slates/stones for him to hide under. But if he's found your place he obviously thinks it's ok
Nice name Lori
He's quite young so you've probably got adults around. Avoid all those poisonous things that people love so much and leave some undisturbed places for lurking
snap again Dove
Thanks Dove and Nutcutlet, Undisturbed you say? Ha! I have no problem with undisturbed areas here! He'll be long gone by the time I get round to disturbing most of this place!
Same here Lori, there's plenty of untouched corners here still, after 22years
Just the way I like it.
Lori........If Newton is anything like my lot, he will be happy enough under a paving slab in a nice shady area whilst his forebears frolic in the pond
Whenever I disturb any small ones and can't leave them in situ, I stuff them in the Nursery...........they seem happy enough
Newton is the name of our newt too! Great minds think alike.
I walked into a pub the other day with a newt on my shoulder.This bloke said 'He's nice,what's his name?' So I said 'Tiny'. The bloke said 'Why did you call him that?' So I said 'Because he's my newt'.
Fishy!! Tut tut
Haha fishy! newton is very cute, we saw today a little beetle type
Thing that looked like a greenish shield, anyone know what it may have been?
