Palmate Newt

Dark blue dots show records since 2000
Mid blue dots show records from 1990 - 2000
Light blue dots show records from before 1990
-
This small newt is easily overlooked, especially as it does not spend much of its time in ponds - damp wooded places are a good bet.
It is the only species of newt recorded in Pembrokeshire - photographic evidence is required if you think you have seen any other species!

6 palmate newts in our pond (Orlandon Kilns SM80E)in April - still two visible now. (Viewed by torch light at night) Hoping for newt-poles later!
