that would make them all palmates then.

will keep an eye out for them, as the babies in particular are very cute.

though I wish they'd stop moving so I could get better photos

Thanks Caleb

The first animal looks like an adult female.  I didn`t make my self very clear.

To the original poster,    where abouts in the country are you?   Palmates are a good deal commoner than smooth newts locally to me also (south wales).
