I wish my pond had newts in it
“For the meek shall inherit the earth”
Your time is coming little friend.
Very nice to see one, not seen one for years.They used to be very common.
"For the meek shall inherit the earth"..........but not the mineral rights ( some ones qoute)
Good one David, I'm like Pw, not seen one for ages. Msg for you on yesterdays P-a-D.
I wonder if newt sightings are directly proportional to the number of times one messes about knee deep in farm ponds.
Poet, the sightings of newts is proportional to the partaking of alcoholic beverages by the general population. Hence the saying "As P----d as a newt"
Quite so DTease, then most often seen in pairs I believe.
We have had a pond in our garden for 30-years and never seen a newt - UNTIL TODAY !!!! My OH cleaned the old Belfast sink out last week that is at one end of the pond so it's now empty but this morning a little newt was in the bottom of the sink trying to clamber up the side which it couldn't so we helped it along with a fish net and now it is hopefully happy in the pond.
What a lovely find. Lovely photo David.
