Smooth Newts on the Patio

These shots were taken just after midnight last night. There were four of them scampering around the patio. Well ‘scampering’ might be putting it a little strongly, but they were a lively and engaging little group and it was good to see the newt population standing up for the local amphibians (it’s been terrible for frogs this year).
