We have always seen our newts in previous years conifer. We have a video of one laying eggs and we often saw them just under the surface. Also there's that movement of water as you approach that shows they've just dived. Very little of that this year and I've only found one in the garden. In previous times they were much move visible and I found them in the nursery under seed trays
Nothing like that this year.
We have (or had) GCNs and smooth newts naturally occurring and some rescue palmates
