Once you've found something like that, in my case Great crested newts under the pots, you could never put out slug pellets again.
Hi. Thats something I have not seen for many many years - a Great Crested newt.
I am an oldie and of course can remember the days when fields were smaller and all with hedges round them - a birds nest in just about every bush. Ponds and streams everywhere and all with their quota of wildlife in them including the Newts both Common and Great Crested. Snakes aplenty also then.
We have lots of both newts Keen and grass snakes but I've never seen an adder
