Interesting the only place I've ever seen newts was the school pond- and it was absolutely lousy with them! Total opposite to your experience. See a lot of toads hidden up as you describe though @nick...
Hi when working in a near by quarry i had the job to clear out all the new saplin trees and grass growing i part off a disused quarry we had to do one sixth every year so it all got cleared in six years bit it grew over in 2-3 as the sediment in the bottom was so rich in nutrients

im not doing this to aggravate you but what breed of cattle are those please? Look very nice, very clean too, must be light ground?Getting caught up with the plough now. Ploughing round about cows! Not looking too bad for having been outside since April.
This is Livestock/Arable which a lot of you guys seem to get excited about. This field will be drilled with spring barley in next fortnight. Weather permitting. Cut mid August. Stubble turnips drilled straight after. Cows on early November, come off now to come inside to calve. Starting next week. After they've calved they'll be fed draff, which is a by product of whisky production. Which the malting spring barley is being grown to produce malt for whisky. They'll be bedded on straw from spring barley thats grown in these fields and the muck will go back onto these fields. But beef production is inefficient and destroying the planet.
I know my front windows disgusting.
