They are interesting animals. I've spent hours watching them in and out of the pond. They dive when they're in the pond and see me coming but otherwise don't seem bothered. There was no panic when I lifted the seed tray and found them under there.

 Has it got space? I've seen shrubs/climber planted in tiny gaps between house and paving.

and it can be very dry on a south facing wall,

make sure it hasn't dried out and water if it has, but don't feed it any more. A plant in that state can't take up food.

smc. to upload a photo start from the camera thing top left over the typing box and work from there. Don't try and upload too large an image, it won't load, nothing happens but you don't get a clue about what the problem is. I reduce all mine, camera and phone, to 30% and they load OK

money talks.

My ponds might be emptied by de-watering for gravel excavation in the field next door. There were surveys done, my ponds, and those of the neighbours over the road, have Great Crested newts. Planning permission was granted.

Nothing an individual can do compares with big business

was someone talking about moving newts? I missed that 

Mine move themselves, I find them all over the place. They don't like hot dry places but the pond is only essential for breeding, otherwise they''re anywhere, I have to be careful gardening, I'd hate to spear one.. Found some in a manhole when we did some work on the drains. I moved those
