|This tiny eft was found in the Park Field pond. It is so small, we think it must have hatched sometime last week.|
|Larger efts from the Walled Garden pond. They still have their feathery gills, but they will disappear soon, and the newts will leave the pond.|
We found great crested newt efts in every pond that we surveyed which is great news for the newt population.
