Newts

Hello bjay, what a fantastic find. I don't know much about newts. I do know that there numbers have been decreasing.Good for you that you want to do the right thing I also know that amphibians are extremely inportant in the food chain.

I had a quick look and it would seem that all the UK species are protected by law- the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981.

wildlifegardener.co.uk- gives some really good advice and a place for you to start. I am sure that some some local wildlife groups would be of help.

If it were me I would cover them back over until I worked out how they could be moved.

Nothing to worry about with the spiders in my opinion.  I would say slugs & snails. They have decimated quite a few plants in my garden this year.

why don't people bother to read post before answering them.

Flo-  you know when something just triggers a memory that you didn't know you had. I have a look on youtube( love the internet) and found it. Still don't know for sure where I've heard it before- but I'm pretty sure it was from my grandad. Thanks

gardeningfanatic- I get what you mean now. Mis-interpreted what you meant. Yes at times the loading of this site was slow, but hopefully that is resolved now.

Kate-  I think trust your instinct - pick axe versus trainers...........nasty

 Flo- I'm with you on the smilies- I think that's called computer programming, that 's another string to our bows
