I was coming up the steps from our cellar (tanked and lined 10 months ago) when I noticed what I thought was a very small lizard, poking out from beneath the timber wall cladding. As I watched, it slowly withdrew back behind the cladding. I went back with my phone cam the resultant image wasn't terribly helpful.

Luckily, I have just gone down again and our visitor was out and about.

Is it usual to find one of these small creatures in such a location? I'm now worried about cleaning because I have used the vacuum cleaner with a nozzle attachment to clean between the floor and the timber cladding. If I do that now, the small creature's life will be at risk.

Conservation suggestions would be helpful.

Hi Neil,

Sorry for belated reply, sadly some posts seem to fall through the net and do not get authorized for people to view.

It is actually a newt. Newts spend much of their life in 'terrestrial' stage, where they live on land but they like dark and damp places, like cellars.
