Thanks to one of our residents, Radu Chirvasuta, who has spotted and photographed a very handsome newt on Holly Close. We’ve checked with Froglife, who have identified it as a Smooth Newt and have also recorded the sighting. Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you spot any others on Derwenthorpe, and send a photo if you can to help with identification. Or anything else you think might be interesting! For more information about newts, visit the Froglife or RSPB websites.
