Checked again today as it was a little warmer but just one juvenile frog. My covers don't see the sun at all this time of year so I may put some down in a different area next Spring

I had a look under the covers again this morning as it was sunny. This is the same one that I saw yesterday, and in the same position. No more seen.




A while later I peeled back the black plastic on a compost heap and discovered this palmate newt.



I photographed it from underneath the glass jar to show some of its spots.

A lovely sunny day but temps mainly in single figures. The same slowie under its cover and another of same size under another cover.
