The Safari's Extreme Photographer has been out around his cottage in the evening counting the Palmate Newts that are still active at this late stage in the year. He tells us there are at least 17 still to be found crawling around over the grass after dark.
One of them had come over all Mystic Meg and was carrying a crystal ball
He also says his bird feeders are extremely lively at the moment (the opposite of ours!) so there might be some pics of those in the future.
