I spotted this today (29 sep) crossing the path towards the first hide.
It looks like a newt to me, maybe a common newt but unsure. any clues?
This is great! Looks like a male Smoothie to me AKA Smooth or Common Newt (Lissotriton vulgaris). What a brilliant spot. He must be looking for somewhere to get out of the cold.
