A very, very small smooth newt* eft crossing the path by Cromwell’s Pond this lunchtime.

Hand for scale; I didn’t pick it up, just lifted it off the path with a dandelion leaf.

* I think… the yellow strip on the back matches the eft photo on the Wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smooth_newt
