I just accept what happens.
I'm not pleased re the newts, we had common, palmate and great crested in there.
tbh I doubt if they've all gone, the pond is too big and wild for none to have escped but there were only a few palmate (rescue newts) and they may be lost. The common and great crested are naturally occurring and I expect the population to recover
