I have just fished out a female newt from my small pond.  On examining her closely, there were no spots in evidence on throat or underside.

We have only ever had smooths up to now.  Is it possible a palmate has moved in or are these markings just not sufficiently conclusive?
All the best

Take a close photo of the underside of the hind feet and post it on here I will be able to tell you whether it is a palmate or not

Regards

A full post code would be good - I would like to see where the nearest palmate colonies are in respect to your pond
