Great Easter Newt Hunt

 Male smooth newt

This Easter, why not take part in the Great Easter Newt hunt (much less fattening than an Easter Egg hunt!)?

The Amphibian and Reptile Trust are asking garden pond owners to look for and record the newts in their ponds in a simple survey. “Newt Hunters” are asked to visit their pond for two short visits (one in the day and one at night) and record their newts on the Great Easter Newt Hunt website

 This year’s Great Easter Newt Hunt takes place between Friday 6th April and Sunday 15th April. Results can be submitted until the end of April.

Full details,  including plenty of photos to help with identification, can be found on the website.
