A Visitor

I was having a quick potter about the back garden earlier, when I came across this little chap mooching under a plant pot.

I think he's a smooth newt, but a juvenile, not an adult. He's pretty small. There's not much to give you a sense of scale in the pic, but that grey blob off to the left of his tail is an upside-down woodlouse. I reckon he was maybe three inches long.  I have noticed an increase in slug numbers lately, so he's very welcome. I hope he gets on with the toad.

In other non-amphibian news, I have been working hard on the ripple blanket.

More about that anon...
