Hi.
We live in Surrey and my daughter found this today under a log, can you please tell me what it is?

Thanks.

John

Hi - it's a young smooth / palmate newt.  I'd go for palmate on balance but not 100% convinced!

Looks more like a Smooth Newt - the orange dorsal stripe is short and starts on the head.
