This weekend I spotted something in The Puddles… It seems we have at least one newt, though how it got there is unknown. It might have arrived as an egg with the aquatic plants, since The Puddles haven’t really been in place long enough for any breeding to take place this year.
It’s impossible to take a photo of him/her, though, as the wee newcomer keeps to the dark corners of it’s puddle, but I’m pretty sure it’s a Lissotriton vulgaris since that’s the most common type of newt in Denmark.
So one more success for The Puddles, eh? And who knows what else might be hiding in the murky depths (okay, they’re one foot deep)…
(Oh, and this morning I was woken up by the bed shaking. Quite confusing, but it turns out there was an earth quake in the Kattegat Sea between Denmark and Sweden at bit before 5am. Damage report: A candle in the sitting room fell out of its candle stick! Oh, the drama…)
