Protecting a newt from a digger
We're getting our garden dug over with a mini-digger next week. I'm currently sifting through a pile f bits of wood and compost that we're clearing out the way for the gardener. I've come across a smooth newt. I'm worried that the digger next week could end up killing it.
Is there any sensible way I can keep it safe for a few days without completely stressing it out? Or is it considered better to leave it to chance it? I'd feel terrible if it ended up getting killed in the process of the digging, but I appreciate I shouldn't really be moving it around. Just thought I'd check in case anyone had been in a similar situation before.
