Me and my son have just cleared out back garden out ready for a bulky waste collection tomorrow. While moving an old sofa and some black sacks, we found 5 drying up and nearly dead newts! We live nowhere near a pond so goodness knows where they came from. They are currently swimming happily around in our water butt!! The question is..... what the hell do I do with them now? If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful.... I only knew what they were due to playing near a large pond as a child.
Thanks for replies. I looked online for any local ponds, no neighbour has one. There's one not far from me so i'm trying to borrow a bucket to move them in. I rang the wildlife number but no answer (sunday). It says they are protected and not to be moved more than a mile from where found. Stuff like this always happens to me!!
