I saw this little newt a few months ago. He was very friendly. After we had a chat and I got photos, I put him safely back in the grass!
I went a walk today and thankfully it was much cooler and overcast. I went up a few steep hills and felt really unfit haha! It had been raining heavily overnight and the ground, grass and woodlands were still wet. By the time I got home and was washing my hair, it started to rain. I was very lucky to have missed it. Great to see the rain though, after our little heatwave! Good for the wildlife and plants.
