Dad burst into my room with a serious face asking if I can pause my work for a rescue and relocation operation.
Turns out, he’d been clearing the gutters and found some little newts (?) just chilling out in there.
Didn’t need to ask me twice! So, I spent about 40 mins crawling on my hands and knees brushing through the leaves and dirt of the full length of the gutter. Found 36 of these buggers (and a handful of big earthworms too).
Snapped a few photos for everyone before releasing them safely into the far corner of the garden. :)
They had orange stripes on their bellies, for anyone who can identify them?
