Great crested newt Christmas card

Great crested newt Christmas card


Most great crested newts woo females by standing on their front legs and waggling their tails. Not this one. This guy has taken it up a festive notch.


The UK's great crested newt is of particular conservation importance. The species is the largest in the UK and has existed for a whopping 40 million years. Despite being protected under European law, populations have been declining over the last century. Conservation organisations are working to protect the species by collaborating with farmers, landowners and planners to maintain and improve newt habitat.


If you’d like to encourage newts into your garden, consider creating a compost heap and log pile as well as a pond.
